Originally released in 1974, as a response to the steps forward basketball design had taken, the One Star was a technological upgrade to the standard All Star. Although the One Star’s time as a court performance shoe was short lived, the shoe’s looks made a lasting impact. It was close enough to the Chuck Taylor to retain its air of timelessness and simplicity, but the plush suede uppers were a sharp new spin on the classic base. The One Star would remain a cult favorite for years before making a full-fledged reappearance.
The Converse One Star ’74 Tech is a shoe that’s ready to trade sharp, city style for a spur of the moment hike, no change of shoes required. A Neoprene slip on bootie and a buckle closure system don’t just look sleek, they offer a more durable, and protective construction than the standard sneaker design. A heavy-duty grosgrain heel loop makes the One Star easy-on, easy-off, while 3m accents and branding increase visibility.
