Converse and Comme des Garçons Play are back at it with a fresh release of their highly-coveted Chuck Taylor 70s sneakers in two new colorways. With the new drop, fans can expect to see the same beloved styling of the original black and ivory CDG Chucks, including the iconic Comme des Garçons heart graphic at the midsole. However, this release will offer the styles in the new hues of “blue quartz” and “steel gray” with the original heart logos swapped for black ones this go-’round.
The new sneakers are set to be released on Wednesday, June 3, 2021, at 11 a.m. EDT. The new shoes will, again, be offered in the low-top Ox and high-top Hi versions.
There’s no doubt that this rendition will be met with great reception given the popularity of the brands’ past collaborative efforts. However, after years of identical re-releases, this unveiling is a nice refresher of the widely-adored silhouette. This latest offering comes a little more than two months after the release of Converse and Todd Snyder Jack Purcell collaboration.
The new shoes will be available for purchase online at Converse.com for $150. But be sure to act fast as these styles may sell out rather quickly. We expect these will be some of the most popular casual shoes of the summer, so you’ll want to add to cart sooner than later.
