Icon meets New Tech: Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit

Leather. Mesh. Plastic. Synthetic–these four materials used to be the options shoe manufacturers had three years ago–leather mostly for formal wear, while the synthetic composites and other three materials allowed companies to lower the prices of shoes and make certain styles more breathable and flexible.

Then in 2012, Nike introduced a fifth option which was their own creation–Flyknit.  

Flyknit is yarn that enormous knitting machines—created specifically to make the shoes, and run by computers with immense processing power—weave, translating complex textural designs into single-piece uppers.

It was a result of a four-year mission by Nike programmers, engineers, and designers “micro-engineering static properties into pliable materials” to develop the technology. They worked alongside marathoners in order to fulfill the specific needs of long-distance runners, and ultimately produced the first two Flyknit silhouettes: the Racer and the Trainer.

It was an engineering marvel that revolutionized shoemaking.

Now the iconic style of Chuck Taylor gets fused  with leading Nike Flyknit technology to create a unique and stylish footwear .

The new Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit collection for Spring/Summer ’17 also marks the first time Converse has incorporated Nike Flyknit technology into any of the brand’s footwear, resulting in a truly innovative version of the Chuck Taylor icon. With this new collection, style meets comfort with the breathable upper to keep your feet light and cool amidst the summer heat.

This completely new perspective features a breathable Nike Flyknit upper and a sleek TPU fused toe cap, making this the perfect footwear option for hot summer days – and keeping you cool without sacrificing style. With a Nike Lunarlon sockliner and a welded micro suede upper, the Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit collection doesn’t sacrifice comfort either.

Available in Black Wolf Grey White and Dark Atomic Teal Igloo/ White . The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit Collection is now available in Converse Brand Stores Nationwide for an SRP of Php 5430 for the high top.
