Today, let’s talk about one of Converse’s most classic shoes – Converse Chuck Taylor All Star 1970s.
The reason why this pair of shoes is called the 1970s is actually a replica of the Converse shoes of the 1970s, and there are also different styles such as 1980s and 1990s.
The 1970s has a unique retro shape, with a slightly yellow last shape as a whole, and a stitched fabric on the heel to prevent the shoe shape from collapsing.
The overall looking narrow and short toe cap, thickened off-white cotton laces, thickened midsole, and the unique routing on the side of the shoe all give this pair of sneakers a full retro flavor.
The red seal on the tongue of the 1970s, in which you can see the words “PLAYERS NAME”. This is because Converse existed as a basketball shoe in the past, because at that time, the shoe type was single, and the appearance of the shoes could not be distinguished, and players often wore the wrong shoes. So players will have their names written on the tongue. This stamp is on only one shoe in a pair. The 1970s retained this seal when it was re-engraved, adding a retro flavor to this pair of shoes.
