Converse CX and Wild Mango

Converse have managed to remain popular across the decades, beginning life as professional basketball shoes, before carving out a permanent spot on the streetwear scene.

The recently released Converse “CX” line proves successful.

While technically a limited edition in itself, Converse believes the CX sneakers reimagine the core of the brand’s, with advances in fit, form and sizing making them more comfortable than ever.

Fun fact: CX is actually a term that Converse first used way back in 1915 to describe a premium line of footwear.

It’s a familiar high-top sneaker, yet hosts a string of upgrades like new stretch canvas, CX foam, and transparent foxing showcasing the midsole.

Of course, the most apparent new feature is the bright orange sole (Wild Mango).

The CX stretch canvas adapt to the wearer’s foot and enable easy on-off wearability. It’s stretchier than the canvas on traditional Chuck Taylors; softer too.

Converse CX scores a pairing of a single-density PU insole, and lightweight phylon midsole to boost impact absorption.

Most noticeably, the new Converse has an outsole design which the brand says provides flexibility and improved durability.
