Possibly one of the most recognizable designs in footwear, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe was the natural collaboration choice for London-based retail store The Hideout. The Hideout, which champions a refined approach to basics, embraced the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe as an icon of minimal, clean, utilitarian design and chose to emphasize and enhance those elements with subtle details. The result are three all-new, stylish versions of the shoe with two low-tops in heavy duty duck canvas and a  high-top in suede. Each feature thoughtful details like triple-needle fabrication that make the shoes more rugged, yet still true to the original design. The triple-stitch detail also evokes quality work-wear and utilitarian clothing, echoing Hideout’s principle of featuring only utility-styled goods. Other details include contrasting canvas heel stripes with stitched leather overlay detailing. Rounding out the design, the shoes look extra crisp and fresh with their clean white soles and a black license plate logo on the heel.

We view the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe as a perfected everyday item. Its design has transcended generations and subcultures and fits alongside Hideout’s history with street style and our reverence to basics and utility,” says Hideout founder Michael Kopelman.

The Hideout debuted in London in 1999 and has become globally recognized as a top destination for premium streetwear brands. One of London’s original streetwear boutiques, Kopelman’s Hideout has pioneered the movement and the brands associated with it. Utilitarian basics are a hallmark of Hideout’s curated offerings and Kopelman has become widely known as one of the world’s most formidable authorities on streetwear.

Converse mixes the old and the new with the use of Nike’s Lunarlon Foam technology in 2 new models, offered exclusively through its prestigious First String Program.

First, the ’70s-inspired Straight Shooter updates its game for today with innovatively lightweight features, premium materials and crafted detailing. Lunarlon foam, engineered for increased comfort and support, lightens up the Straight Shooter’s cupsole construction, a rubber-wrapped midsole maintains Converse’s telltale vulcanized look, and the outsole pattern takes what began on the All Star-inspired sneaker and modernizes it for today.  A remake with understated style, clean lines and a name to match.  In the canvas offering of the Straight Shooter, the duck canvas upper features nickel eyelets and a monochrome leather heel stay. Available in Natural and Black.


Second offering, the Star Tech is a heritage-inspired silhouette with an innovatively lightweight sole. The Star Tech’s cupsole utilizes a Lunarlon foam drop-in, while a rubber-wrapped midsole maintains Converse’s telltale vulcanized look. The outsole pattern evolves what began on the Star Tech sneaker’s predecessor the Straight Shooter, a ’70s sneaker that borrowed from All Star DNA. The iconic-made-modern vibe continues on the Star Tech’s retro-tech nylon upper which features sharp triangular accents and suede detailing on the toebox, heel and medial overlays. Finished with the Star Chevron logo and a cotton terry lining.

Both shoes are available on MAJOR Online Shopping Channel, as well as MAJOR Showroom in Georgetown.

Equal parts refined and rebellious, the Converse Jack Purcell sneaker is inspired by the man behind the iconic smile. In 1935, world-famous badminton champion and tennis pro Jack Purcell helped design his innovative and durable performance court shoe with the iconic smile on the toecap.

The Jack Purcell Johnny sneaker, named after the man himself, offers a traditional take on the classic Purcell style. Debuting in the 1930s as one of the original Jack Purcell silhouettes, the Johnny sneaker features exposed shank detailing on the outsole of the shoe.

Pushing the classic-yet-mischievous lines that define Jack Purcell, the new Johnny Weld sneaker features Bemis weld detailing, a technique commonly used to seam-seal waterproof outerwear and outdoor tents. Applied here, it reinterprets the reissued silhouette for a modern take on the original. The shoe is lined with terry cloth, which harkens back to the sport performance shoes of the 1980s and offers a “retro-tech” feel. Pinstripe detailing on the rubber midsole offers a finishing touch alongside the signature Jack Purcell smile.

Available in Grey/White Hi, or Beluga/Purple Oxford models.  Limited to 150 pairs in the US.  Now available at MAJOR showroom in Georgetown & via phone order.
