Converse CPX70: A daring fusion of iconic silhouettes

Included in the Twisted Classics collection, this futuristic model is a bold fusion of outsole designs of four iconic Converse silhouettes - 

Chuck Taylor All Star High Top - Also known as Chucks, this high-top footwear was launched in the 20s as a basketball shoe. This iconic silhouette is made of canvas upper with a flexible diamond-patterned rubber sole.

Converse Pro Leather High Top - This leather version of Chucks was the first to use the cupsole technology wherein a single piece of rubber hugs the foot to give lightweight and durable traction.

Converse One Star sneaker - Originally built for basketball courts, this kick stands out from the crowd for the star emblem stitched on the side.

Converse ERX 260 Mid - This mid-top shoe was designed originally as a basketball shoe but is now picked by sneakerheads to be their stylish casual kick.

Exciting details about the Converse CPX70

Although this model is molded from 4 iconic models, it flaunts a new look while keeping the retro vibe. The upper takes the vintage Chucks' profile seated on top of the reconstructed rubber cupsole and a decorative ankle piece. To make this iteration more exciting, the brand unveiled several striking versions, such as the Wild Zebra Stripes, Play Logo, and White Leather.
