Converse Converse x Ambush CTAS Lugged - Black

$200.00 AUD
With the first Ambush x Converse collaboration in 2019, Ambush head
designer Yoon Ahn set her sights on the first silhouettes in Converse’s
Charlestown, Massachusetts archive, to the time before the iconic Chuck
Taylor All Star. Among Converse’s history of military and cold weather
footwear, Ahn found the inspiration for a unique reimagining of an early
extreme cold weather boot. When it comes to collaborations with
Converse, most designers simply reimagine the Chuck Taylor 70 without
significantly altering the foundation. Yoon Ahn, however, goes right to the
source, resurrecting long-forgotten shapes from one of the world’s most
well-known shoe labels.

With the Chuck Rubber Boot, Ahn and Ambush have once again sought
inspiration from the time in which Converse was known as the ‘Converse
Rubber shoe Company’ with humour and clarity of vision. In homage to
this beginning, rubber as a primary material is essential to the resulting
aesthetic, at once utility-geared and exuberant. With the material no
longer restricted to the outsole, this shoe combines an extended lug sole, toe cap, and heel cap in one piece of molded rubber for added protection in all-weather conditions. Here in the black colourway, the Chuck Rubber
Boot also features include striking Ambush branding on the heel and a
rubberised All Star logo on the inside face of each shoe.
