Coinciding with the upcoming spring season, Converse revisits the timeless Chuck Taylor, adorning the kick in colorful tones for the “Resofla” Pack. A Hawaiian vibe is channeled on the canvas uppers of the Hi and Slip Ox, as two color variations of the floral print take over each pair. The darker colorway features a red background with yellow, orange and blue flowers, while the lighter versions see the same colors on a white background. Don’t sleep as the Converse Chuck Taylor “Resofla” Pack is available now in limited quantities at atmos.
Converse started off on the court and then got adopted on the street. In the year 1908 based out of Boston, Converse began as a rubber company to make sneakers and boots, and then found them selves on the basketball court and reinvented the sport. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker became the court sneaker; it stood for the game. From there Converse moved into other sports with new sneaker silhouettes like the Pro Leather, the Star Player, and the Weapon. The Star Chevron showed up and became another Converse symbol. And just when we seemed to be destined for athletes only Ã¢â‚¬â€œ something happened.
Converse sneakers showed up in rock clubs, on the streets, on rappers, on icons, on rebels and originals. It became the sneaker of choice for individuals. From All Star to Jack Purcell to CONS, Converse doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t confine itself to one style or definition.
