I'm excited to introduce a new series in the Visual Canvas called "All Star Modern" every third Thursday of the month. Every month we'll showcase a different popular artist and his/her style - and we'll showcase them in a beautiful new canvas!

The Future Canvas Collection is the fourth installment of the Chuck Modern Collection. This collection sets out to modernize canvas with enhanced features and benefits for our consumers. Future Canvas is a unique new peached textile with the capacity to take on any color or design which has been the power of Converse’s blank canvas for generations. This is the next evolution of canvas for the next generation of Chuck Taylor.

Today, Converse is announcing the Chuck Modern Future Canvas, which puts a modern-day twist on the sneaker's traditional upper. This is indeed canvas, but it's easy to mistake for microsuede thanks to the peached finish that's been applied to the fabric. Converse promises that the material can take on any color and design that's ever been used on the original Chuck, but for the time being the company is only releasing it as a parchment high top and a black oxford, either of which will slide smoothly into the wardrobe of anyone affecting a riff on the Scandinavian-minimalist look. (And, honestly, pretty much everyone else.) (Source: www.esquire.com)

Conventional wisdom says that you don't mess with something that works, particularly something as widely loved as the Chuck Taylor. But Converse has had some good luck recently mixing things up with its most iconic model. In the span of just a couple years the Chuck Taylor All Star II has become almost as common among street style aficionados as the original. Now the brand is in the process of pushing things even further with the new Chuck Modern collection.

We’ve seen them go from being a humble basketball shoe to a symbol of youth and rebellion, from a wholly functional piece of sports gear to a worldwide phenomenon. There aren’t really many other styles of shoes that have had that much of an influence on youth culture than the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. Though for much of the style’s life, Converse has adopted a, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra, recent years saw some small changes being made to the design. We explored these through The Sequel, part of the Forever Chuck series. The result of these changes is the Chuck II; a more cushioned and comfortable sneaker for a new generation. Now, looking again to the future, Converse presents The Evolution; the Chuck Modern collection. (Source: heygents.com.au)
