Following its debut on the runway at London Fashion Week last fall, the Run Star Hike became an instant hit. The shoe is a mash-up that maintains a classic Chuck 70upper with a highly evolved midsole.
The result? The Converse Run Star Hike is fitted with an unapologetically bold EVA midsole, finished with a rubber heel wrap and distinct Star placement. Taking cues from zig-zag lugged hiking boots, the Run Star Hike is designed with exaggerated tooling and color pops, bringing high visibility to any look.
There’s more: Converse x JW Anderson Grid and Americana Chuck 70
Also available from April 25 onwards, for the first time in Singapore, is the Converse x JW Anderson Grid, which gets its name from the grid monogram formed with a repeated print of the words “JW Anderson”, a staple of the partnership between Converse and JW Anderson from the get-go.
There’s also a newer version of the grid design dubbed the Converse x JW Anderson Americana Chuck 70, which features a graphic application of the “American Flag”, a print derived from the Converse archive. First introduced in 1991, the “American Flag” makes an eclectic appearance on the JW Anderson monogram grid base, resulting in a harmonious clash of past and future.
All the styles featured above are available from April 25 onwards. The Converse x JW Anderson Run Star Hike (in black) will retail at Pedder on Scotts at S$199.90. The Converse x JW Anderson Chuck 70 Grid (in black and white colorways) and Americana Chuck 70 will retail at Pedder on Scotts and Limited Edt Chamber at S$169.90 a pair.
