SOFT MEETS SPORT. By 1970, the design of the Chuck had evolved to the height of function and utility for sport and was considered the best basketball sneaker, ever. The Converse Chuck 70 High Top sneaker is built from that original design, now updated with extraordinary attention to detail. Inspired by our love of the court, pebbled leather is brightened with a soft wash of color. Premium materials, archival rubber taping, and extra cushioning.
