With a vision to create a little more balance in the footwear industry, beyond its famous Chuck Taylor stance, Converse is banking on collaborations. Converse has now brought a new dimension to online sneakers in partnership with A-Cold-Wall.
Introducing the A-Cold-Wall x Converse Sponge Crater CX. A layout to push the Nike brand in a new design direction, this silhouette is featured with Converse CX comfort technology embodied throughout.
Look and feel
The sneaker uses repurposed and recycled materials in the sculptural design of the Sponge Crater CX. The shoe with a radical exoskeleton cage and exaggerated recycled EVA heel strike looks genuinely exciting and equally comforting, likely because the company notes that the sneaker “cocoons the foot for support and stability throughout the ride. daytime”.
The Sponge Crater CX features a soft, breathable knit upper that resides within a full cage structure comprised of Crater Foam. The shoe is then paired with a PU foam sock liner that holds the foot securely and features pull tabs to allow for smooth entry and easy exit.
Price and availability
The PU coated lining makes the upper of the shoe waterproof and the silhouette arrives in a nice double branding to make it a worthwhile buy.
In this deal, the A-Cold-Wall x Converse Sponge Crater CX is available from June 23, 2022 on the A-Cold-Wall website. The sneaker available in all men’s sizes starts at £100 (around $120).
