Converse Sakura Chuck 70 Sneakers
Just in time for sakura season, Converse has released a new iteration of one of its signature silhouettes. Now available on the Converse US online store, the Converse Sakura Chuck 70 sneakers are available in 2 different designs: Cherry Blossom and White.
The sneaker design
The Sakura Chuck 70s come in a high-top style, a familiar favourite among sneakerheads. A sheer fabric is used to create a texture that is reminiscent of a soft pleat.
Bright fuschia on the outsole gives the shoe a pop of colour, while leather sections provide a cool contrast against the sheer fabric.
As always, the high tongue and Chuck Taylor ankle patch contribute to the iconic Converse look.
What’s new in this edition of the Chuck 70s is the fusion of printed and 3D cherry blossoms. Protected underneath the organza fabric, these cherry blossoms come together to mimic the effect of falling petals.
Another thing to note is the translucent rubber material revealing the sakura details. It goes all the way down to the midsole, a trendy way to play up the classic sneaker.
The Chuck 70
It is no surprise that Converse has released another high-cut shoe in lieu of the spring season, given its continued success with the Chuck 70 collection.
A twist on the Chuck Taylor, Chuck 70s are a nod to the model’s history as a popular American basketball shoe in the 1970s. Converse sneakers have since been redefined by users for different purposes, making them suitable for almost any outfit and occasion today.
