Converse Chuck Taylor All Star – Spring 2014 Collection

converse chuck taylor all star spring 2014 collection 01 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star   Spring 2014 Collection

For Spring 2014, Converse debuts a Chuck Taylor All Star collection featuring various pops of colors and equally varied eye-catching prints, as well as elevated silhouettes primed for self-expression. The latter element is seen in the women’s double wedged Chuck Taylor All Star Platform Plus, which is available in assorted vivid hues and imbued with a feminine touch. The Chuck Taylor All Star Tie-Dye comes in low and high silhouettes and showcases color to the fullest. Finally, the new Converse All Star Chuck ’70 is released with two of the first prints ever seen on a Chuck Taylor All Star — camouflage and zebra — along with six of the original 1972 colors in high and ox silhouettes. All feature original ’70s detailing in the form of heavy grade canvas uppers, smaller toe box, reinforced canvas heel strips, premium nickel hardware, thick cotton laces and a cushioned sockliner for added comfort.

In honor of the launch, Converse hosted a special media event in New York City where local graffiti artist Queen Andrea presented three new murals she created for Converse. The murals were part of Converse’s Sneakers Clash art initiative, which also features artists Megan Caponetto and Greg Lamarche, both of whom were asked to re-imagine everyday spaces in San Francisco, Boston and New York.

PUMA’s Ron Perkins and Yoshi Yoshimura Break Down the Trinomic XT1 and XT2

Last year marked the special reissue of PUMA’s Trinomic XT1 and XT2 retro runner. Headed by designers Ron Perkins and Yoshi Yoshimura, the pair walk us through the significance of the Trinomic cushioning technology from the ’90s and the challenges of bringing back footwear designs that have been out of the public eye for over 20 years. Shot at its Boston and London headquarters, the short offers a glimpse at PUMA’s upcoming Trinomic releases for 2014. Perkins even dissects the original packaging of the sneaker and the reason behind tapping the iconic green shoe box for the reissue. Be sure to peep the visual above and see what Perkins has to say about one of his favourite silhouettes below.
“When this shoe first appeared in our catalogue in 1991, it was a game-changer for PUMA. We didn’t make shoes like this. I think that everybody on the team agreed that this was a great silhouette, so why can’t we do this now? It’s perfect timing to bring it back.” - Ron Perkins, PUMA Senior Footwear Designer.
