Alright, I finally got the new Chuck Taylor All Star '70 Hi in classic black/white. I also own the standard Chuck Taylor All Star Core Hi in classic black/white. Before purchasing, I knew that this was the shoe everybody's been waiting for; a retro CT design from the 70's. I watched several reviews online, every one of which was raving about how great the shoes look and feel. But now that I have them, I beg to differ. Although the look is indeed more classic and retro, they just don't look and feel as good as the standard Core Hi. First off, the CT '70 are too bulky. All over. The sole has more padding and feels more cushioned, but that comes at the expense of being thicker, heavier, and significantly less flexible. Same goes for the canvas material. The shoes may prove to be more "heavy-duty" than the standard Core Hi, but that simply doesn't outweigh the downgrade in style. Everyone will have their own opinion. To me, this is a case where less is more. I feel that the standard Core Hi is a more agile shoe. It goes with everything, whereas, for example, I can't imagine wearing the '70 Hi with shorts due to their bulkiness. I was under the impression that Chuck Taylors from the '50-90's era were the ones to own (partially because they were made in the USA), but now I realize that the current, standard Chucks simply look and feel best.

I am not sure if these are "exact specs" from the 70's, but these are significantly better than most Chucks that are being sold right now. The upgraded quality is apparent right away when compared to the standard Chuck of today. As a lifelong wearer of Chucks, I really hope that they keep these around. The top notch materials and better cushioning make these worth the extra money. The fit is the same, but feel is much better.

I have been a Chuck Taylor wearer for years, and the new '70's Chuck Taylor is a gem. The cushioning is amazing; so much, in fact, that my other Chuck's are in the attic. Moreover, the look is sleek and attractive--looks good with jeans or a nice go with for higher occasions.

I'd also recommend: Vans Sk8hi

Those that think these are 'bulky' fall into one of two categories, or maybe both...they have either never played any real ball in Chucks, or they are under 30 years of age. I played hs and college ball in Chuck's in the late '60's to mid '70's and these are the real deal. The flimsy, unpadded, thin-soled ones out now are but a mere shadow of what they used to be. Feels good to have a real pair of Con's on my feet. Reminds me of when only legit ball players wore them. If you couldn't hoop, you looked silly in them. Times do change though...sigh.

As a fan and collector of vintage Chuck Taylors, I was very exited about the release of this shoe. These are amazing. They are heavier and more stiff than my vintage Chucks, but the look is great and I give them an A+ for comfort (even without arch support- which Chucks have never had). A few years back I shelled out big bucks for a pair from the Addict Line (released only in Japan) and these put those to shame.
