Converse, which is a subsidiary of Nike, unveiled the Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase today. A majority of the upper retains the traditional look of the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star, but the shoe’s standout design element is the collapsable heel, allowing individuals of all physical levels to wear and take off the sneaker with minimal effort. Additional upgrades include a CX foam midsole and a modified sock liner for added comfort.
“By blending Nike FlyEase with the Converse CX comfort platform, we’ve crafted a progressive design, one that marries a suite of comfort-innovation technology with the added benefit of ease of entry, making the Chuck Taylor All Star more accessible to Converse fans of different abilities,” Phil Russo, Converse’s global VP of design and innovation, said.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase will be available in Greater China, Korea and at select markets starting on Feb. 24. The sneaker will then launch on March 17 at Converse.com in North America and Western Europe.
