The classic Converse hightop is practically a footwear institution. In fact, even Blue Ivy Carter is fan. (She wore a pair to the Beauty and the Beast premiere in LA.) You never want to mess with a good thing, but if you have to change up a classic like Converse, leave it to Nike to do it right.
Nike’s famous Flyknit Sneaker, which debuted in February 2012, is already a must-have athleisure staple — and now the sporty clothing brand is giving the iconic Converse hightop the Flyknit treatment. And it looks GOOD.
As the owners of Converse, Nike isn’t new to collabs with the popular brand. The Converse running shoe and the Chuck Taylor All Star II were both birthed from a Nike x Converse collaboration. With “second skin” Flyknit technology, these shoes are undeniably comfy without compromising the impossibly hip look and feel of Chucks. Say hello to your new favorite sneaker.
The Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit shoe will come in six colors and go on sale on April 27, 2017, so be on the lookout!
