In the sneaker world, plenty of silhouettes come and go, and for sure there'll be some you'd have missed out on, including iconic colourways. If you can't handle taking Ls, then you absolutely need to gear up for the much-anticipated Offspring x Converse Chuck 70 "The Flip" Pack releasing very soon. Revisiting the OG "Offspring Community" pack from 2019 which consisted of two luscious colourways, UK's renowned sneaker store Offspring and fan-favourite Boston shoe Converse "flips" their initial designs and graces them with premium overlays that will have Offspring Community members absolutely buzzed to receive a winning message from their thrilling Instagram competitions.
Taking on the footwear label's famed Chuck 70 shoes, a modernised version of the classic Chuck Taylor All Star from 1917, the co-branded Chuck 70s will come in two iterations that will seem oddly familiar with long-term supporters of the retailer: the high and low Chuck Taylor 70 exchanges colourways respectively while boasting slight tweaks when it comes to branding.
Both finely dressed in suede construction as opposed to the traditional canvas build, the Offspring x Converse Chuck 70 Flip Black sees a high-top silhouette with a blacked-out makeover whereas the Offspring x Converse Chuck 70 Flip White showcases a low-top profile clad in pleasing hues of cream. Maintaining the lightning bolt graphics from the previous capsule that was originally on the soles, these variants flaunt them on the laces instead and complemented with repeated "Offspring Community HQ" imprints throughout, as well as on the rear segment of the cloudy translucent thick midsole underfoot. Additional script text that reads "Community Members" also lands in other sections.
Further co-branding details appear in the form of Offspring's mascot logo gracing the topmost eyestays and the tongue's underside, finally rounded off with Converse's instantly recognisable All Star emblem on the medial side panel that is removable and an oversized Converse and lightning bolt logo hid within the outsole that can be seen when you look directly underfoot. Not to forget, both trainers are expected to come with an exclusive Offspring-themed box, one that you definitely wouldn't want to throw away.
The Offspring x Converse Chuck 70 "The Flip" pack is scheduled to land at select Offspring stores on April 15. Whether you've been part of their beloved community for quite some time now or not, these are no doubt still highly worthy of being in your collection.
