Editor’s Notes: Jonathan Anderson continues his collaborative partnership with Converse, as this week we get an official look at the designer’s new Run Star Hike sneaker, following its debut during JW Anderson‘s SS19 show last September in London. The silhouette is ultimately a mash-up of the iconic Chuck Taylor and the Run Star.
“Contrasting proportions have always been part of my design aesthetic,” says Anderson. “When I approached this latest Converse, I was looking to re-create the same aesthetic by pairing the sole of a Run Star with the classic Chuck Taylor to emphasize the proportions.”
Anderson chose to leave the upper of the Chuck Taylor intact, then utilizing the sole of the Run Star. Featuring an overall stacked height, the shoe’s sole then welcomes sawtooth tread, while subtle details on the sneaker include hand-drawn typographical marks.
The white version of the Run Star Hike notes the date of “1917” beside the patch on the canvas upper, signifying the debut of the All Star. Conversely, the upcoming glitter iteration has “2017,” pointing to the initial release of the JW Anderson x Converse Chuck 70 Glitter.
Prior to JW Anderson’s Converse Run Star Hike general release in February, the sneaker is available in limited numbers exclusively online.
