Converse sneakers are a South African staple - one might even argue that the classic 'Chuck Taylor All Star' is an essential sneaker that everyone should own. They're versatile, fun, work with almost any outfit and are just an all-round great shoe.
The converse brand is constantly releasing new sneakers and collaborating with creators for special editions; this is an essential part of what has kept them relevant and fresh throughout all these years.
If you're looking for a Converse sneaker with a bit more edge, more colour, more patterns, and more variation - we've got you covered. Let's take a look at some of the most recently launched Converse shoes:
Converse X Bugs Bunny 80th
The Looney Tunes legend Bugs Bunny makes his Converse debut with an iconic capsule collection, leaving his mark on the Chuck Taylor All Star—and more. Bringing carrot-crunching, wise-cracking fun to screens, Bugs Bunny is the cartoon legend you grew up watching. Now he joins forces with the iconic sneaker in the Converse X Bugs Bunny Collection—and not just for kids. Featuring faux fur, carrot embroidery, and the famous Looney Tunes logo - this all-ages collection is literally bursting with Bugs.

Converse x GOLF WANG Chuck 70
Premium craftsmanship meets quirky design on a bold new Chuck 70 from GOLF WANG. Tyler, The Creator trades the classic canvas for washed denim and covers it from top to bottom in bold rainbow polka dots (yes, the outsole too). The design comes straight out of the GOLF WANG archives, reviving an iconic pattern that was featured in their first runway show back in 2016. On these new limited-edition Chucks, the funky archival print and unique denim construction brings GOLF WANG’s signature style to the elevated comfort and durability of the Chuck 70.

Converse x Feng Chen Wang 2-in-1 Chuck 70
First seen making noise on fashion runways in New York and Shanghai, the notorious 2-in-1 Chucks from Feng Chen Wang are hitting the streets for the first time in two bold colour combinations. The disruptive take on the premium Chuck 70 breaks apart the iconic design and brings it back together in a new form, featuring an extra canvas overlay, double foxing and split outsole. Taking inspiration from Feng’s “My Half” collection, it portrays two distinct sneaker halves being fused together into one cohesive whole. Only Feng Chen Wang can design a Chuck 70 like this.
