Slam Jam founder Luca Benini is a self-proclaimed ’80s fanatic, inspired by the American rock bands of the day who favored Converse Chuck Taylor on and off the stage. The Converse x Slam Jam Chuck Taylor 70 pays homage to the revolutionary artists of the ’80s, but uses the chunky’ 70s silhouette to ensure that retrospective inspirations are carried into modern times.
The Converse x Slam Jam Chuck Taylor 70 is characterized by deconstruction. Frayed edges deliver a punk-rock aesthetic that sits on the iconic clean white rubber sole, with a thin black stripe. A light gray edging between the sole and upper reflects the gray laces which add pop to the classic black and white color scheme. A tone-on-tone Slam Jam logo details the outer ankle while the Converse star logo takes its usual place on the inside.
