Introduced to the sneaker world in the 1970s, the Converse Chuck 70 silhouette is basically an offshoot of the Chuck Taylor All Star silhouettes that were released in the 70s. Small changes were made to these versions of the Chucks in order to counterbalance the rise of the production cost as well as to keep its manufacturing within the United States.

In 2013, Chuck 70 was re-issued and the model features the design of the 70s Chucks with modern modifications for enhanced comfort and durability. The upper construction of the sneaker is made of thicker canvas with 12oz weaves that are also tougher.

The sole of this re-issued version is also 5mm higher than the 70s version and is made of denser rubber compound. Finishing up the entirety of the updated sneaker design was the nickel-plated eyelets and the heavy cotton laces.

Being basically a modified version of the Chucks All Star, the Converse Chuck 70 is also not a stranger for its own modifications. The silhouette has witnessed a good number of design renditions, colorway iterations, and collaborative releases.
