Good to know

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top X Frozen 2 silhouette comes with a traditional lace-up enclosure system which helps you in locking your foot down securely. The low-top profile of this retro release also allows you to move your ankle quickly and easily. This unisex silhouette is offered in both men's and women's sizing.

With its timeless appeal, the Frozen 2 Chucks Low Top brings out your Disney side with its multi-colored, Frozen 2 inspired colorways. Keeping your style fun and casual, this kick functions well in various casual occasions to keep you looking fresh and stylish on the streets.

As versatility comes naturally with most pairs of Chucks, the Frozen 2 Low Top Chucks complements a wide range of ensembles effortlessly. For a free, fun, and casual look, the standard t-shirt and jeans or shorts works pretty well with the Chucks Low. For a semi-formal, the sneaker complements a button-up and coat and a pair of regular-fit or slim-fit pants.

Carrying the remarkable design of the Chuck Taylor All Star Low top, the Converse X Frozen 2 Chuck Taylor All Star, as mentioned in its name, is a collab release of Converse for the Frozen franchise. It exhibits a canvas upper with multi-color prints inspired by the Disney movie, Frozen 2. Finishing off the shoe construction is the notable rubber sole of the Chucks.

Originally introduced in 1917 as the "Non-Skid," the silhouette that we all know today as the Chuck Taylor All Star showcased a high-top profile in its natural brown colorway with the black trimmings. It also featured its remarkable rubber toe caps and the leather patch on its heel with the "Big C" logo, which was not necessarily for branding but instead, for ankle protection.

The Non-Skid shoe was then renamed as the "All Star" in 1920. Together with the name-change, the brand also released the canvas or leather upper in an all-black colorway. In the year 1921, Converse closed a deal with the basketball player, Charles "Chuck" Taylor. It was Taylor who saw the All Star silhouette's high potential. With Taylor's partnership with the brand and his hard work and dedication, he managed to bring the shoe to its peak of fame. As a recognition for his effort and hard work, Converse added Chuck's name into the iconic ankle patch, officially calling the silhouette as the "Converse Chuck Taylor All Star."

                 The Low Top Chucks

During the 1950s, basketball players requested to have a shoe that could allow them to move around freely. Converse has come up with the idea that was having the Harlem Globetrotters to help them out. Dozens of All Star silhouettes were sent to the team together with some designers to develop the prototypes. The Globetrotters are the ones who would test the prototypes on the court and give their feedback about the samples. The project led the brand to create the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top. The low-top version of the Chucks was released in 1957. Along with the high-tops, they reigned over the courts for another decade. 

Rival brands then started to develop their silhouettes equipped with high technological innovations and advanced new designs. During the 1970s, players are moving from Converse to the other brands to try out those other innovative shoes. But that shift didn't hold back the brand as it found a new home in the lifestyle department, and the All Star kicks naturally transitioned and established quite a reputation in the streets.

                 Low Top Chucks Collaboration With Disney's Frozen 2

Over the years, the Chucks Low Top has witnessed various iterations and has been in quite a number of collaborations as well. One of the most recent collaboration Converse has for the Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers is with Disney for its Frozen 2 inspired collection.

Featuring the classic design of the low-top Chucks, the Frozen 2 version of the sneaker also exhibits a canvas upper in multi-color and sparkling colorways for a Frozen 2 feels. The design motifs on its colorways go from Elsa's sparkly ice-inspired dress to Olaf's carrot nose and the enchanting and mythical Nokk.

  • The Converse X Frozen 2 Chucks Low is also available in kid's sizing.
  • It features a lurex woven label and antique brass eyelets as well as a two-tone license plate.
