It's been roughly 40 years since punk rock exploded on the scene in the '70s, and Converse is celebrating the birth of the subversive music genre. First up is the Chuck Taylor All Star '70 Hi, featuring a rear-seamed white leather upper with the tongue and waxed black leather lacing carried over to the heel. It's joined by a Chuck Taylor All Star CVO, and both are outfitted with punk-inspired mohair fabric and a vibrant pink sockliner, along with "creeper"-inspired molded rubber foxing. On the women's side, the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi appears in two colorways, each finished with gold studded hardware across the upper and star-shaped studs across the tongue. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Punk Collection drops Friday, February 12, at select Converse retailers and online

Release Date: 2/12/16 (Friday)
