Who should buy the Converse VLTG Run Star Hike

This Converse sneaker is a good match for you if:

  • You want a shoe with a funky and futuristic look that you can wear anywhere
  • You are after a sneaker That is effortless to pair with different outfits

A shoe that will not let you down in terms of comfort...

This modern rendition of the Chucks All Star high-top has a lace-up enclosure system that many attest to provides ankle protection and support and ensures an adjustable, secure fit. This kick is also built with OrthoLite insole cushioning that provides better comfort to the feet.

...but has tricky sizing, consider sizing down

The Converse VLTG Run Star Hike is available in both men's and women's sizing. A Converse sneaker would normally run big as stated on its website, while some customers recommended going half to an inch down in size. 

Its details are the perfect accent for your outfit

The VLTG Run Star Hike is a high-top silhouette that gives a funky and futuristic look. The shoe upper is made from the classic Converse canvas seated on top of the chunky midsole. Sneakerheads loved the midsole which is approximately 2 inches thick, and the big embossed star on the heel.

There are also jagged rubber pieces on the outsole, and it has crisp white laces to finish the entire look of the shoe. This statement shoe comes in red and teal, two new colourways that give a VLTG vibe. 

Ideal sole for the soul

According to some sneaker enthusiasts, what makes the VLTG Run Star Hike stand out from the rest of the Chucks All Star high-tops is the chunky sole with jagged rubber pieces attached underneath the shoe. The rubber pieces add accents making the shoe edgy and funky looking. While it retains the classic Chucks canvas, they added OrthoLite cushioning to provide better comfort.   

Chuck Taylor saw the potential of the shoe that he worked his way to bring to its highspot in the shoe market. Because of Taylor's success, Converse included his name on the All-Star iconic ankle patch and officially called it Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star.

Designed to fit any style and fashion

Since then, the Chuck All-Star Sneaker has met a lot of alterations and modifications from its design to materials to offer people a wide range of sneakers that many love. Converse has also collaborated with different brands and designers to fit everyone's style and fashion.

Converse introduced the Run Star Hike in 2019. It was initially a collaboration between Converse and JW Anderson. And because of the silhouette's popularity and success, Converse offers this model as part of its ongoing seasonal lineup. This shoe is reckoned as one of the most acclaimed Converse sneakers of 2019. It combined the past, present, and future to give a modern take to the classic shoe
