With the Chuck 70 silhouette intact, the Converse VLTG Chuck 70 exhibits a quite distinctive look with its notable “bolt-chevron” upper design accent that visually represents its name, VLTG. The model sports a combination of canvas and leather on its upper construction in an eye-catching, distinctive, and color-blocking finish.

The Chuck 70 silhouette was first introduced in the world during the 70s. The silhouette was a side shoot of the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe that came out in the 70s as well. To counterbalance the production cost rise and to keep the manufacturing process within the US, the brand made small changes to these models of the Chucks All Star.

A re-issue of the Chuck 70 was released in 2013 in which the model exhibits modern improvements on its design to upgrade its notable durability and comfort. This silhouette sports a thicker and tougher upper made of 12oz weave canvas with its sole that is also higher by 5mm and is made of denser rubber compound. The silhouette also features nickel-plated eyelets with a set of heavy cotton laces.

A modification from the original Chucks itself, the Chuck 70 is no stranger from any alterations, whether on its materials, design, or just the colorways. The brand has introduced many Chuck 70s over the years. In 2019, Converse launched the Converse X VLTG Collection, and one of the models included in it is the Converse Chuck 70.

The Converse VLTG was first introduced in 1995. It was a unique silhouette that doesn’t come close to comparison with any of the footwear products of the brand with the “bolt-chevron” upper as its most distinctive feature as it also mimics its name. It was this year through the collection that the silhouette comes back to the surface and along with it are the VLTG versions of the standard Chuck Taylor All Stars and the Chuck 70s. The VLTG Chuck 70 delivers quite an eye-catching appeal with the VLTG touch on its canvas and leather upper and color blocking appearance. This women’s sneaker combines classic and modern in a quite stylish finish.
