Converse follows in the footsteps of the Nike Space Hippie by revamping the timeless design of its classic high-top sneaker to infuse it with a more modern aesthetic and design philosophy. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Crater is made using Morphlon blends which combine leftover materials from factory floors to ensure that nothing goes to waste. This new approach ushers the 100-year old sneaker into a new era as part of the Nike Move to Zero mission.
The emphasis on the sneaker’s sustainable construction is met with an eye for design that is just as forward-thinking. Crater Foam is molded into the base of the next-generation Chuck Taylor All Star, helping to reduce the amount of material that goes into each sneaker. A new lacing system brings together the Morphlon upper, which has a more recycled content to weight ratio of 40% or more. The use of these materials breathes new life into the Converse sneaker, which comes in two grey colorways complemented by red or green stitching on the heel as well as a charcoal version.
