Reimagining the classic Chuck Taylor All Star 70, Converse now introduces a Punk Boot Hi silhouette that is completely backwards – literally. Instead of having the laces in its typical placement at the top of the shoe, the new trainer instead situates them at the heel, tongue tab and all. In place of laces at the front, there is instead sleek stitching running down the length of the shoe. Rounding off the look is subtle, debossed branding on the inner medial panels, as well as a clean cream-colored midsole.

You can shop the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star 70 Punk Boot Hi now in either “Pale Putty” or “Black.” Both pairs are available now for €119.95 EUR (approximately $142 USD) at select stockists such as Overkill.
