Phoenix Sun’s star shooting guard Devin Booker has held a long-standing affinity with the Converse Chuck 70, routinely partaking in the silhouette’s simplistic composition as a staple within his minimalistic wardrobe seen as he struts through the tunnels of NBA arenas. An old soul at heart with his documented fawning over ’59 Chevrolet Impalas, Booker’s appreciation for a bygone era is now expressed through his first collaborative effort with the wing underneath the Nike Inc. banner.
Debuting the upcoming collaboration before the Sun’s regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, the Devin Booker x Chuck 70 strips away the timeless silhouette to its bare bones, delivering a crisp canvas upper and rubberized sole unit rendered in an undyed, clad “Egret” color blocking. Ditching both its pinstripe and toe bumper that typically dawns the tape midsole, a tonal embroidered Chuck patch partakes in its typical placement on the medial alongside silver metallic eyelets and a synonymous gum tread that further entrenches the pair’s old-school roots. Approaching the Boston-based brand with the hopes of a collaboration, Booker will join the likes of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and PJ Tucker this week as the latest NBA athletes to receive their own reimagining of the brand’s extensive on-court archives.
