Converse Chuck Taylor All Star NBA Collection Sold Out

Converse had released a beautiful set Chuck Taylor series highlighting NBA teams. The collection is now listed as Sold Out on the Converse website. The collection, released just four months ago, was incredibly popular amongst NBA and Chuck Taylor fans. The collaboration between the NBA and Converse stems from the relationship Nike, which owns Converse, has with the different sports associations and leagues.

You may be able to get your hands on some of the limited edition NBA Collection Chuck Taylors on websites such as eBay or third party sellers, but it probably won’t come cheap. Although Chuckverse cannot confirm if there was a direct collaboration with team members on designs of the shoes, each shoe design represents the team in true glory.

Premium materials were used to create this collection, and no detail went unnoticed. The shows are likely to be on display shelves rather than used as daily drivers. We hope to hear about some great auction stories related this collection in the future.

A song of ice and fire

It’s not often that we go about posting shoes that are not Chuck Taylors. In fact, its extremely rare for us to post anything other than Converse and Nike news, shoes, and updates. However, we would be amiss not to add a beautiful shot of the Adidas Yeezy Boost side by side black vs white comparison we spotted on Reddit.

Some of the most popular shoes of the decade, we have seen many folks stand in long lines to obtain varieties of these shoes. We thought this shot that was submitted by a reddit user deserved spotlight on our blog.

Remember that Adidas was the number one competitor to Nike when the company was just starting out. With that being said, the duel between Nike and Adidas, although likely to be forever lasting, was not related to our beloved Converse brand. The Converse brand was picked up by Nike in the early 2000s.

A Very Chuck Taylor Wedding

One of the cultural icons of our generation is to see the Chuck Taylor come into play on a couple’s very special day. The wedding day. Typically seen as part of the groomsman’s uniform, we received a message from a Photography company that had a very cool take on bringing Chuck Taylors to the ceremonious day.

Something that we have never seen during our search for Chuck Spotting, the tip we got was about custom monogrammed Chuck Taylors. Yes, weddings these days have their own logos and their own websites and in San Francisco might even have their own apps! There’s no doubt that SnapChat filters are a popular wedding decoration as well. Nonetheless, these Chuck Taylors are amongst the coolest we have been able to spot. And, what a beautiful shot of the rings intertwined to these gorgeous custom pair of chucks.

There is a category for Converse “Wedding Shoes”

We all know that Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars are a popular choice for wedding. Cutesy weddings, hipster weddings, casual weddings. All types of weddings. Really though, a pair of nice clean Chucks go REALLY well with a fitted suit.

Converse took note of this, so far as creating an entire category for “Wedding Shoes” on their site.

Walk down the aisle in style with a pair of Converse wedding shoes. Constructed with the latest and most innovative shoe technologies, all wedding Converse are built for all day wear, which means you can dance late into your wedding night in complete comfort. Whether you’re looking to dress the bride, groom, flower girl, groomsmen or the entire bridal party, Converse has the best selection of wedding shoes for your big day celebrations.

Well, we agree with some of the classic takes they have. And, of course the feature that allows you to customize the Chucks are also a great way to color match your suit or dress. We’ve seen quite a bit of Chuck Taylor wedding’s since we started covering Chucks in 2010 and we are super excited to see a lot more. 😃

Nike Flyknit meets Chuck Taylor

Okay, let’s face it. Technology is changing and that means that we are seeing a lot of new styles when it comes to fashion and especially shoes. Outside of health benefits and ergonomics (I mean, the Chuck Taylors are super comfortable #amiright) we are seeing a lot of design changes.

TeenVogue reports on the new collection from Converse x Nike where they use the Flyknit fabrics and design styles on the Converse Chuck Taylor Sneaker. Sure, it’s not the standard canvas but do these look sweet. Plus, I bet they breathe really nicely which is great for Chucks.

👟

They have the Toe Bumper, Stripe, and the insole of the Converse Chuck Taylor II so there is no doubt these will be some comfy sneakers.
