Converse shoes were a major ’70s influence seen on the runways and is about to hit the streets. As of February 15, Converse debuts First String Standards, a collection of sneakers reissued from the Chuck Taylor All Star vault. The shoes feature high rubber ridges and a wider curve at the toe. These classics were once worn by style icons such as Patti Smith, Joan Jett, and Farrah Fawcett.
The shoes retail on Converse.com for $70, and by April, resurrected color-s will include the likes of Pool Blue and Sunflower Yellow. For now though, they’re only for sale in black and white.
