This 70s Wardrobe Staple Is About To Make A Major Comeback

Some things never go out of style.

Flared pants, bell sleeves, fringing on everything… Is it just us or did the 70s have a serious style revival last year? And while these trends will come and go, there’s one throwback from the disco era that will always stand the test of time. It’s the timeless wardrobe staple you’d be just as likely to see at this year’s Coachella as you would a 1970’s punk rock show. We are, of course, talking about the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70.

Young or old; male or female; rapper, rock star or street style blogger, the iconic Chucks transcend all differences — giving us that 70s spirit vibe of unity and togetherness. The high-top sneakers are affordable, stylish and versatile enough to take you from day to night. They look just as effortlessly cool paired with a summer dress as they do with shorts, jeans or active wear. No easy feat for a pair of shoes created almost 50 years ago, if you ask us!

The Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 was an update on the original non-skid basketball shoes from 1917. By the 70s, Converse had realised that the iconic shoe was destined for greatness outside the sporting world. So, with features like 100% organic cotton canvas and a cushioned footbed, they were re-designed for ultimate style and comfort off the basketball court.

Now, to celebrate the original, the sneakers have been re-crafted with modern details like an Ortholite cushioned footbed and thicker rubber. So, whether you’re rocking your Chucks to brunch, a festival or even to work, you’ll look stylish and feel supported all day. Yep, there’s a reason all the fashion cool girls are swapping their heels for the comfy kicks!
