Latest Converse Collab Looks Nothing Like A Converse Sneaker


The most famous Converse sneaker is arguably the Chuck Taylor, the 1920s basketball shoe that left the hard court to become a ubiquitous staple in contemporary footwear. And in recent years, high-profile designers from Virgil Abloh to Rick Owens have harnessed the silhouette for collaborations. Yet for Converse’s latest collab, A Cold Wall founder and designer Samuel Ross set out to create an all-new silhouette: the Aeon Active CX, unlike any Converse sneaker we’ve ever seen.

The shoe appears to have crashed heel-first into Earth from space. It feels more high-performance Nike than something from the more casual Converse, but that’s the point. As a designer, Ross has always brought an artistic, edgy vibe to his work, which is precisely what he did here. (Good reminder, too, that Converse is owned by Nike.) It’s a futuristic slipper with a stunning, ultra-plush foam sole. The sneaker has runway quality, from the fashion-forward silhouette to the fashionable leather and suede accents. The first colorway (“Micro Chip and Healing Jade”) is set to drop on April 12, and a second (“Black and Apple Green”) will drop in May.

The bulbous, amorphous silhouette of sneakers is on the rise. Think Pyer Moss’ Sculpt sneaker, the all-new Balenciaga Defender, and Kanye West’s yet-to-be-released zip-up sneaker-boot. You can officially add the Converse Aeon Active CX to the list. Ross cut his teeth at Off-White and Yeezy, and you can feel the groundbreaking ethos of Virgil Abloh and West has stuck. (More directly, the colors seem to take a slight nod to the Air Yeezy 2, while the typography printed on the side looks Abloh-esque.) With A Cold Wall, Ross is known for his high-level design with a separate point of view. , and he brought that to this collaboration. In other words, there’s definitely no mistaking this Converse for a Chuck Taylor.
