Unlike any of Converse’s early predecessors, their latest partnering with A-Cold-Wall on a distinct recreation of the Aeon CX is fluid in bespoke style language and enhanced performance – focussing on the unique sociographic aspects of life. Adopting intrinsic elements of streetwear paired with unrivalled athletic performance, this season unveils another footwear guise that follows its own stylistic narrative.
It is not the first line of collaborations we have seen of Samuel Ross’ conceptual streetwear giant. I’m sure you’ll remember the Zoom Vomero 5 for its exaggerated heel piece. Or perhaps the release of the terrain inspired boot with footwear brand ROA this year.
This Aeon CX iteration is readied in a mixed nylon ripstop and poly elastane base offering a stretchy and hugging element to the foot. Bold tones of black coat this perforated design paired with alternate pull tabs on the tongue and one that sits above the translucent heel clips. Co-branding insignias lie on the lateral heel, midfoot, sidewall and toe cap, while a plush CX foam envelopes the footbed – delivering unbeatable comfort with every wear. Hints of neon green embellishes the outsole and a lugged crater foam midsole completes the look with a cloud-like stride with every step.
