From creating the first basketball sneaker to choosing weapons for the greatest rivalry in basketball history, Converse has been part of the game and its culture since the beginning. To celebrate our heritage in sport and design, we’ve taken the iconic 1920 All Star and modernized it with new construction and inventive materials. Featuring a circular knit upper for lightweight comfort and secure fit, the shoe also features a lightweight Nike Hyperfuse construction for durability and support. A contoured full-length Phylon midsole provides lightweight direct underfoot cushioning, while a neoprene split tongue and lining offers additional comfort. To round it out, there’s a TPU fused overlay toecap for durability and a TPU fused All Star patch. Lightweight and more comfortable, it’s the beginning of what’s next. The Converse All Star Modern.
