Putting the All in All Star: Converse Makes its Chuck Taylors More Accessible With FlyEase Tech


The universal fashion classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star can now be worn by all with its newest iteration incorporating the Nike FlyEase accessibility tech

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars is undoubtedly a fashion classic. Its universal design, opportunities for new colorways and collabs, and even its comfort make it a beloved model. But in true legend-status fashion, its design continues to evolve to make it more accessible. We’ve seen this natural progression in other brands. In 2015, renowned Nike designer Tobie Hatfield fulfilled the dream of a young teen with Cerebral Palsy by inventing FlyEase. This hands-free technology removes barriers for people to style, play, and wear what they want. Now, the technology takes a step into the world of Converse by evolving its most beloved silhouette.

Let’s move out!

For the first time ever, Converse has adapted Nike technology in their shoes with FlyEase being incorporated in the ever-popular Chuck Taylor All Star. The Chuck Taylor All Star joins other sneaker game icons such as the Air Jordan 1 and Nike Air Max 90 as a beloved silhouette to incorporate FlyEase accessibility technology.

The Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase Ox offers a hands-free experience, allowing seamless step-in and step-out of the shoe. This recrafted Chuck Taylor All Star retains the stylish elements that make it an icon, but with a forward-thinking, futuristic, and sleek aesthetic.

The FlyEase cage is the anchor of the whole system, made of a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material that flexes and rebounds, allowing for hands-free foot entry and lock down. A canvas upper with a padded stretch-canvas collar and a fixed padded tongue ensure a secure fit. A functional heel tab and heel overlay allows you to get up and go in mere seconds.

While the Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase Ox has made entry easier, an innovative insole loaded with CX foam and a polyurethane leather sockliner ensures all-day comfort as well.

Featuring a mix of canvas, stretch canvas, fused eyerows and toecap, and mix of opaque and translucent foxing tapes, the Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase Ox offers a bold, recrafted take on the classic Chuck Taylor silhouette—ultimately, looking as good as it feels on foot.

Cop the latest Chuck Taylor All Star CX FlyEase in any of its three debuting colorways: Black/Wild Mango/White, White/Black/Wild Mango, and Egret/String/Light Silver. Its dominantly neutral shades make it an easy pick that naturally fits your style.
