Converse Revamps Classic Silhouettes in Latest CX Collection

Alongside the new Aeon Active CX in collaboration with A-COLD-WALL*’s Samuel Ross.

Converse has unveiled its latest sneaker collection featuring three silhouettes. As part of its innovative toolkit of materials called CX, the brand’s Run Star Hike and Weapon have been given the CX treatment.

“At Converse, we are incredibly proud of our heritage which serves as a point of departure for a Design and Innovation approach that’s pushing our brand to new space,” Converse’s VP of Global Design and Innovation Phil Russo said in a statement. “We are taking iconic favorites, including the Chuck Taylor All Star and the Weapon, and enhancing them with CX in response to consumer insights to drive comfort improvements.”

The Run Star Motion CX, a revamped version of the Run Star Hike, comes with a CX foam drop-in encapsulated by an EVA foam midsole. Elsewhere, the outsole boasts a new design, while the upper sports the pair’s original elements. Meanwhile, the Weapon CX is the modern iteration of the ‘86 on-court shoe. Featuring the original Y-bar for stability, the sneaker also arrives with a CX foam midsole and newly engineered outsole.

As for the Chuck Taylor All Star CX, the classic shoe is crafted from stretch canvas material and features transparent foxing, allowing you to see the midsole. Finally, in collaboration with A-COLD-WALL*‘s Samuel Ross, the Aeon Active CX is a brand new silhouette that sports a bootie construction and exaggerated heel.

The Run Star Motion CX is now available via Converse’s website and select retailers. The Chuck Taylor All Star CX and Weapon CX will receive a later launch date this fall, and the Aeon Active CX will drop towards the end of this year.
