Converse and Vince Staples celebrate Big Fish Theory in the first collaborative capsule collection between the brand and artist, applying the album’s motifs onto the 1970’s Chuck Taylor high and low.
The collection’s key colorway, orange, is a nod to the goldfish on his album cover. This bright colour contrasts the collection’s darker tones to make for highly visible gear. Both the Hi and Ox Chuck 70s are built with an aquarium sockliner, Big Fish Theory graphic outsole and “Vince Staples” embroidered on the medial collar. The Chuck 70 Hi boasts a “Big Fish” screen print in orange that stands out against the sneaker’s black tongue.
A common design element throughout the collection is the “SEA” graphic, a tribute to Staples’ signature brand and successful Beats 1 podcast, Section Eight Arthouse Broadcast System. The “SEA” of the Chuck 70s is 3D printed onto the heel with the “A” placed to cross with the heel stay and transfer onto the foxing tape.
