There's a shoe that has always been synonymous with freedom of expression and creativity, reflecting the personality of the wearer, today as the day it was first created. This is the soul at the heart of Converse Chuck 70, a modern ode to the Chuck Taylor All-Star designed in the '70s, a unique silhouette that has inspired the special event that Converse has prepared on the occasion of the Milano Design Week.
