Continuing the Converse All Star 100 rollout marking the 100th anniversary of the iconic Chuck Taylor sneaker, Converse Japan has unveiled a NASA-themed design that utilizes the technologically-advanced materials that were used to make the Apollo 11 spacesuits.
20 of the 21 different layers that comprised the material that made the Apollo 11 astronauts' spacesuits used Dupont innovations, including DuPont™ Nomex® fiber and Kapton® polyimide film. That same material is used to make the two Chuck Taylor All Star 100 'Spacesuits' Hi sneakers.
Complete with REACT insoles that feature both the Apollo 11 and the Space Shuttle Columbia, along with distinct rubber soles and a sensibly subtle patriotic color way of red, white, and blue. The designs feature both NASA logos and water-repellant laces.
The Converse x NASA 'Spacesuit' HI will drop March 12th via Converse Japan's website and will run about about ¥12,100 Yen, which equates to about $111.00 USD.
