Converse has introduced a new trio of silhouettes for fall called the CX collection. Combining bold design details underpinned by an emphasis on comfort, the collection features the Weapon CX, Run Star Motion CX and Aeon Active CX.
Commenting on the motivation behind the CX capsule, Nike vice president of design and innovation Phil Russo explained, “The original intent of CX was to create an innovation suite that answered for what we were hearing from people about Converse: They loved our brand and product, but they thought we were lacking in comfort. It was a motivator to answer the call. And it’s allowed us to now push even further on a more forward-leaning aesthetic.”
Priced at $120, Converse’s platform Run Star Hike CX in black and white launches on converse.com and at select retailers on June 16, 2021.
The Weapon CX will launch in fall 2021 The Aeon Active will make its debut through a collaboration with Samuel Ross of A Cold Wall in late 2021. The inline version of the shoe will launch in early 2022.
