Good to know

As a unisex shoe, the Converse Double Upper Chuck Taylor All Star is available in both men’s and women’s sizing. Buyers, though, are advised to consider going down in size as it is common in Converse Chucks to run large, as cited in the brand site. It is also good for buyers to consider to use cushioned inserts as the Chucks normally have a flat sole. The high-top construction of the sneaker also provides firm support for the ankle.

From the basketball court, the Chuck Taylor All Star has naturally transitioned to the streets and became one of the staple silhouettes in the sneaker culture. It blends in with various fashion styles and works well with all ages and quite versatile as well when it comes to styling.

                 Keep It Stylish With These Doubled-Up Chucks

Here are some clothing options that are commonly found in most’s wardrobe that you may want to try out when wearing your pair of the Double Upper Chucks High Top:

  • Skinny jeans, slim-fit jeans, straight-cut jeans
  • Joggers, sweatpants, or shorts
  • T-shirts, short-sleeved or long-sleeved button-ups, sweaters, hoodies, pullovers
  • Women may throw on either a mini or the maxi bohemian dress, cocktail dresses, mini skirts, shorts, as well as crop tops, peasant blouses, oversized shirts, and t-shirts for the upper.

The design construction of the Chucks High Top is one of the most recognizable silhouettes of all time. The very iconic sneaker is unmistakable among everywhere they go and anywhere they are spotted. But what makes the Converse Double Upper Chuck Taylor All Star quite distinctive among its fellow Chucks, is its double upper construction. The high-top sneaker exhibits the double canvas upper material all with its double tongue, double sets of eyelets, and double laces. The colorways of the sneaker also vary on each of the double canvas upper to have some contrast between the doubled materials.

In the year 1917, the All Star High Top silhouette was brought to life and was then known as the “Non-Skid” shoe. It was originally in its natural brown with black trimmings colorway and features the high-top construction that we all see in the Chucks today. The Non-Skid also showcases the rubber toecaps and the leather heel patch with the “Big C” logo. The heel patch, though, is for ankle protection and not for branding. 

The name of the silhouette was then changed to the “All Star” in 1920. A new colorway of the shoe was also released by the brand at that time, the all-black colorway in canvas or leather upper. The All Star shoe was initially used for netball, which is the previous version of basketball, and soccer. 

When Converse made a deal with Chuck Taylor in 1921, the silhouette reached its highest point of fame with his help. He was the basketball player who saw a huge potential on the All Star. With that success, Converse gave Chuck Taylor a huge recognition for its efforts and officially added his name onto the iconic ankle patch of the sneaker, thus making its new official name as the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star.

All through the years, the sneaker has been a subject of quite a number of collaborative releases which includes the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star X Nike Flyknit High Top, Converse x Miley Cyrus Chuck Taylor All Star High Top, and the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. It has also undergone various modifications to its design structure and alterations on its colorways, resulting in a wide variety of renditions of the sneaker. These renditions include the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Renew High Top, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Leather High Top, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Waterproof Boot Nubuck High Top, and the distinctive Converse Double Upper Chuck Taylor All Star. The Double Upper Chucks is quite unique with its double upper construction with contrasting colorways.

  • The signature Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ankle patch on the medial ankle area of the sneaker.
  • Converse All Star branding on the heel of the Converse Double Upper Chuck Taylor All Star.
  • A pair of this Chucks sneaker comes with flat laces.
