Statement shoe for the bold and spirited

Sneaker fans are all blown away with the Converse Run Star Motion's super edgy and crazy chunky style.

Bizarre but not awkward

Most users love that this shoe gets a lot of compliments from family, friends, and even strangers.

Big but gentle

Many (including those with flat feet) are surprised with this shoe's cushy soles that add "bounce in every step." A handful even said that walking on these feels like "walking on air."

Chunky but not clunky

Despite its bulky sole, this shoe is shockingly light as a feather.

It doesn't wear out fast

Buyers like that these shoes are well-made.

It doesn't strain the arch easily

The thick soles offer ample arch support. It doesn't put a lot of toll on the feet that fast.

It makes you a fraction taller

Both male and female users are happy with the Run Star Motion's platform-like soles that add a few inches to their height.

Blends with lots of sporty and streetwear clothes

Despite its unique look, this shoe goes well with different outfits.

Short supply of colorways

Fans of this shoe can't wait for the brand to release more fun colorways.

A bit spacious for slim feet

Sizing down is an option you'd have to take if you have narrow feet because this can feel a bit loose.

Middle layer crinkles over time

The cushy sole may show creases when worn. 

Converse Run Star Hike: the chunkiest of them all

Move over Adidas Crazy 8 and Nike Air Max 720. When it comes to crazy and chunky, the Converse Run Star Motion deserves the spotlight.

Converse breathes new life to their regular Chucks by ditching the minimal vulc sole and replacing it with a beefy, toothy outsole. The result is a chunky platform kick dubbed as Run Star Hike. The brand, however, thought they could do more. And they did.

Enter Converse Run Star Motion - a crazy-looking sneaker with a sole that's almost thrice as big as the classic Chucks.

Converse Run Star Motion vs. Converse Run Star Hike

Besides the obvious difference in these shoes' sole construction, here's a list of upgrades in the Run Star Motion that you won't see in the Run Star Hike:

  • The Run Star Motion's upper is made of organic cotton 
  • A lace loop is added on the tongue to keep the tongue centered
  • It's made comfier with the addition of the CX foam. This also trimmed down the shoe's weight
