Nigel Cabourn x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey

Nigel Cabourn examines Converse’s rich American heritage of boots and sneakers created for the outdoors and the military, and infuses his own designs into the Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey with rich Ventile fabric uppers in military-inspired navy and olive green colors. Ventile fabric was developed for use in WWII flight suits as a material to protect Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire pilots when they ejected from their planes into icy cold waters. The Ventile fabric extended survival time tenfold and saved many ejected pilots’ lives. Suits made with Ventile fabric remain in use by British Royal Air Force to this day.
