Converse is joining its fellow family members at Nike and Jordan Brand in committing to reducing waste and using up-cycled materials through the new Space Hippie/Crater program.

In doing so, Converse has taken the Crater Foam outsole and fused it with an icon, the Chuck Taylor All Star. In addition to the instantly recognizable new outsole, the classic canvas upper has gotten a Space Hippie makeover as well. The toe cap, foxing tap and pin stripe have been reworked with Morphlon blends - including recycled polyester and recycled post-industrial textile waste scraps. A new lacing system using less material was also created.

The resulting Chuck Taylor All Star Crater will release in "Black," "Charcoal" and "White" on July 23 via converse.com and SNKRS app for $95 each. In related news, Converse recently collaborated with Kith on a Looney Tunes Chuck Taylor.

Release Date: 7/23/20 (Thursday)
