Have you ever noticed that many kickass film and TV characters wear a specific signature shoe?

From cult classics like 'The Breakfast Club' and 'Back to the Future' to more recent hits like 'Stranger Things' and 'Black Mirror', the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star has played a key role in bringing some of the most memorable characters of all time to life.

To explore this trend in media, Converse has launched a new series called 'Forever Chuck' that will revolve around one question: why do iconic characters wear Chucks?

Check out the first episode below, hosted by actress Millie Bobby Brown (best known for her role as Eleven on the popular Netflix series 'Stranger Things').

In this installment, she meets top Hollywood stylist Stephanie Collie and together they explore why the coolest characters in film wear Chucks and what Chucks say about those characters.

On a more local front, Malaysian Converse fans are now able to get their hands on the brand new Chuck Modern East vs West pack! :D

The new Chuck Modern East vs. West is part of Converse's Chuck Modern series that will be launching throughout the Spring/Summer 2017 season. Available in black and white, the Chuck Modern East vs. West was inspired by the All Star game and each pair is meant to represent an individual All Star team.

Paying tribute to on-court athleticism and off-court street style, the Chuck Modern East vs. West Pack has optimized details including reflective elements for standout style, and an upper made out of a reflective backed mesh for athletic style and eye-catching pop.

You can get them at Converse retail stores in Pavilion and Mid Valley for a retail price of RM599.90
