The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 Heads to Space

Space the final frontier…the moon landings of 1969, have gone a long way to inspiring the generations that have come after it and finally that inspiration has filtered into Converse with the release of the new Chuck Taylors. The ‘70s heads to Space’ designs incorporates many clever references to the space race of the 70s. The first shoe includes the black and white patch work motif to symbolise the first men to land on the moon, the 3M reflective detailing to mirror the outside look of a space ship. While the second pair looks to integrate the aesthetic of the splash down balloons used vitally to help the astronauts re-enter the earth’s atmosphere, while oceanic blue on the sole symbolises where the men landed.  The collection is truly out of this world! You can get both pairs of sneakers retail at $120 USD and are available now on the Converses online store.
