As a brand, Converse has come a long way since legendary sneakers like the Chuck Taylor and Jack Purcell got them off the ground. This is especially true when you consider their acquisition by Nike and the integration of Swoosh technology into those iconic sneaker profiles that most of us grew up with. This has perhaps never been more apparent than it is now with the new Converse CX Series Sneakers. This new line of Cons utilizes the brand new CX toolkit with stretch canvas, foam and a new outsole as the three core elements that inform the design of a completely updated set of sneakers for the modern consumer. They still look, perform and feel like the century-old designs you’ve grown to love, they’re just better and more performance based. The CX line includes three new designs: “All Star Disrupt CX (A future-forward twist on the classic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette through its key signifier — an exaggerated statement heel counter — intended to be expressive, bold and a signal of both comfort and newness), Chuck Taylor Disrupt CX (A sleek, low-cut slip featuring CX stretch canvas and foam, with radical design language, such as an exaggerated heel counter.), Chuck Taylor All Star CX (A familiar classic, hosting upgrades like new stretch canvas, CX foam, and transparent foxing to showcase its transformative midsole, energizing both in look and step.)” The entire line of Converse CX Series Sneakers will start dropping at Converse and select global retailers beginning March 19th.
