Converse Run Star
The Converse Run Star is a futuristic take on the Converse Run Star for a different take on any look. Characterised by a chunky platform and a serrated rubber sole.
The Converse Run Star Hike High Top sneakers are a clear example of how the redesign of classics, even if they are risky, can extend the legacy of a historic brand such as Converse even further. Three years later, this silhouette is already considered an established Converse model.
Basically what Converse has done is to convert its iconic Chuck Taylor into a running shoe, keeping the original canvas silhouette and incorporating a serrated platform sole designed for running and injection moulded.
This sneaker model has quickly become one of the most sought after and is a clear hybrid of past and future. Due to this and its high demand there have been many brands and designers who have decided to create their version of these Converse trainers through collaborations such as; Converse Run Star x Keith Haring, Converse Run Star x JW Anderson or Converse Run Star x Space Jam.
