The Converse Chuck Taylor is easily the most well-known sneaker of all time. Originally built for basketball, the classic silhouette was recently reworked by Off-White’s Virgil Abloh, though it was mysteriously absent from release calendars, until now.
Virgil Abloh’s unique take on the Converse Chuck Taylor was one of the most anticipated shoes from “The Ten” collection last year. Unfortunately, the release of the Off-White x Nike collaboration was somewhat bungled, with consumers largely upset with the in-store only policy. Finally, when an official release came via Nike SNKRS in November, the Off-White Converse was nowhere to be found. No announcement was made, and some expected that the Off-White Converse would never release.
They would be wrong, though. After a rumor that the lost Off-White Converse would be releasing sometime this Spring, we now have a release date straight from Converse. The final piece of the Off-White x Nike “The Ten” collection will release in early May. The shoe, as part of the “Ghosting” section of the collaboration, pits the Converse All Star in a translucent upper to highlight the inner layers and workings of the shoe.
The Off-White x Converse CTAS will release exclusively from both collaborative partners in May. Converse and Off-White are thus far the only retailers expected to be receiving the shoes, so don’t even bother with the Nike SNKRS app.
