One of the best-known shoes the world over are the Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars which first appeared on the scene in 1917. Although more than a century old, the silhouette has so far undergone only a few tweaks and upgrades, the design has largely remained the same. Probably the most updates the model has undergone could be seen with the introduction of the Converse Chuck 70s in, you guessed it, the 70s. 

After the shoes’ 70s debut, they reappeared again in 2013 and have remained on the shelves ever since. The Chuck 70s are a tougher and improved version of the All Star. The shoes contain 12oz weave canvas uppers which mean that they could take a beating. The soles are also higher by 5mm, and the toes and midsoles feature a varnished and shinier look. Heavy cotton laces were also thrown in along with cushioned foam insoles that make these the most comfortable iteration of the classic yet. 

OG license plates were placed on the heels of the Chuck 70s, and nickel-plated eyelets kept the look classic. 

Due to this model’s extreme popularity with even Converse purists, the brand has launched several versions of the Chuck 70s. One of these is the Converse Chuck 70 Heavy Metallic Leather High Top shoes. The shoes sported much of the same design as the old classic Chuck 70 sneakers, but the usual canvas uppers of the Chucks were replaced with leather which was given a metallic finish.
