Mark: A-COLD-WALL* x Converse
Model: Aeon Active Cx
Editor’s notes: A-COLD-WALL* took to Instagram in June 2021 to tease a new collab with Converse. The sneaker in question is the new Aeon Active CX, which represents Converse’s radical new design language.
Sam Ross’ label has worked with Nike and its subsidiary Converse in the past. Projects range from slight tweaks to classic silhouettes (the ACW* Air Force 1 comes to mind) to completely revamped icons, like the brand’s previous Converse Chuck Taylor Boot collaboration. This time, however, Sam Ross and Converse have put the distinct A-COLD-WALL* aesthetic on an all-new silhouette.
In the teaser, we can see that Sam Ross has given his next collaborative sneaker a translucent icy outsole that contrasts with the slime green midsole. The upper of the sneaker features a perforated construction in a mix of materials. A-COLD-WALL* branding is present on the midsole and upper. The colorway is heavily reminiscent of Kanye West’s iconic Nike Air Yeezy 2 colorway, where the same infrared was mixed with black and neon green.
The Converse Aeon Active CX represents a shift in product design for the brand, which has benefited greatly from the popularity of its classic sneakers. While a general version of Converse’s CX sneakers launched in 2021, the A-COLD-WALL* Aeon Active CX is expected to arrive soon as the brand recently opened online check-in for updates by E-mail.
No doubt Sam Ross or the brand itself will reveal more detailed information in the coming days. Stay tuned, and until then, check out the teaser above.
