Converse Chuck Taylor All Star 70 Wetsuit Collection

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 ‘Wetsuit’ Collection was created to help combat the temperamental seasonal weather in style.

The sneakers are released in two colorways on the classic high-top model and draw creative references from protective, functional wetsuits that were developed in the 1970s, designed to keep surfers and divers warm and comfortable in cold water.

The weather ready silhouettes are offered in black and aquatic blue with a contemporary neoprene upper, that reveals a subtle “seal skin” graphic print texture on closer inspection. Technical features include an innovative, seam-sealed heel stay with fuzzed vertical zippers to allow easy on-off action, and a gusseted tongue. Gloss ankle patches, midsoles and toecaps compliment the look, as well as heavyweight black laces and yellow accent pops.

Converse First String is a limited-edition collection that celebrates craftsmanship, authenticity and collaboration at the highest level. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 “Wetsuit” Collection will be available for purchase starting Friday, October 30, 2015 at Converse flagship stores in the US, on Converse.com, and select premium retailers worldwide. They will retail for a SRP of $120 USD.
