Under its premium First String imprint, Converse is set to launch the All Star Chuck '70 Down, a winterized version of the iconic sneaker silhouette that boasts the functionality of a utilitarian outerwear staple. The monochromatic nylon upper is finished in a diamond quilted style reminiscent of a luxury down jacket, padded with an 80-20 ratio of down and feathers. A red-and-blue grosgrain lace loop running down the tongue is an additional element inspired by winter outerwear, while a split blue and red foxing stripe invokes the brand's all-American DNA. A micro suede lining for maximum warmth rounds out the details. Available in Beluga and Gray Morn, the kicks are scheduled to release on Black Friday through Converse retail stores and online.
Release Date: 11/28/2014 (Friday)
