Teaming up for the 5th, you read that correctly, 5th time, CLOT and Converse are back with a First String makeover for their 1970’s Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette. Named the “Chang Pao” collection, these kicks get a blue suede and white canvas makeover in addition to some interesting features such as what appear to be silk cufflinks…

“The CLOT for Converse First String Chang Pao collection features a blue suede and white canvas edition of the “Chuck 70s” sneaker, each rendered with a classic gum sole, which has become a signature of the CLOT for Converse collaborative works. Classic detailing is brought to life with three Chang Pao-inspired buttons stitched on the lateral upper and through gold, silver and white accents on the eyestays, giving the sneaker an authentic Chinese feel. The collection also features the premium elements of the “Chuck 70” sneaker, including an elevated foxing, added cushioning and a substantial toe box for added comfort, and comes with special packaging including a printed dust bag and a shoe box with gold foil lid.”

These CLOT for Converse First String kicks will be up for grabs in the US exclusively at the Juice Pop-Up shop on October 31st, and globally at select Converse First String retailers beginning on November 1st.
