Its been a while since we’ve seen a collaborative footwear release from Samuel Ross’s A-COLD-WALL. Last year, the brand unveiled a new project with Converse before going dark on the matter for over a year. Finally, the ACW x Converse capsule drops this week.
For those paying close attention to A-COLD-WALL’s Converse capsule collection, this new release information might come as somewhat of a surprise. Originally announced early last year, the two-shoe capsule collection featuring the Chuck 70 and the ERX was indefinitely delayed for over a year, leaving some pairs stranded in the warehouses of retailers for months on end. However, finally, the two have come to announce a release date, which will see the A-COLD-WALL x Converse collection release around the world. The two-pack of sneakers features two legendary silhouettes from the Converse archives, the beloved Chuck 70, and fellow basketball shoe the ERX. Both pairs have undergone extensive reconstruction to fit Ross’s vision for the project. The ERX has been remade entirely from suede and nubuck, featuring new panels and layering that give the retro shoe a much sleeker look and shape. The Chuck 70 also adds some new additions in the form of a tremendous new sole unit that extends far up the sides to protect the ripstop upper.

The long-awaited project from Samuel Ross’s A-COLD-WALL’s and Converse has finally been announced for release, making its debut tomorrow, on September 14th, 2020, followed shortly by a global release on September 17th. Both pairs in the collection will launch first from ACW’s website, followed by a wider release at global Converse retailers.
