Converse Chuck 70 Pops Up at ION Orchard
words by iqmall
Celebrating the revolutionised classic, Converse Singapore is holding a pop-up event at ION Singapore from 15 – 19 January 2020. As you may know, the Chuck 70 silhouette is a remastered take on the classic Chuck Taylor All Star. The current iteration of the shoe is a re-crafted version of the 1970/1971 model , featuring the same extra heavy canvas and rubber, extra cushioning, wing tongue stitch, and even the asymmetrically placed toe bumper. It has now come into the spotlight again with it being the sneaker silhouette of choice for many new-age designers such as Rei Kawakubo, Missoni, Jonathan Anderson and Virgil Abloh.
The bevy of activities lined up during the pop-up include: Live Customisation on your new Chuck 70 provided by Mark Ong , Lovage , Pras The Bandit , Zan Cheong and Erikartoon, iron-on patch shoe personalisation, silkscreening, a Chuck 70 Hall Of Fame and also a chance to win a pair of Limited Edition Chuck 70 when you snap a GIF at their animated booth. A celebration of heritage, make sure to head down to ION as the Chuck 70 takes over the whole of Basement 4.
