At the Graduate Store, we offer a wide selection of Chuck Taylor 70s high, low and in all colors. Also known as Ctas 70, it stands out from the classic Converse Chuck Taylor! The 70s are recognizable by a reinforcement stitching on the outside of the front of the shoe, but also with a stronger structure and a thicker rubber sole for more comfort.

Recognized for its standing, it is particularly large compared to the other pairs of the Converse range. Try to choose the right size for your future Ctas 70. Even if the final decision will depend on the morphology of your feet and your sensitivity, we advise you to opt for a ½ at 1 size below your usual reference. This advice is all the more true as your foot is small.

Example :
- I usually wear a 39 Eur => I take a 38 Eur on a Chuck Taylor 70s
- I usually wear a size 44 Eur => I take a size 43.5 Eur on a Chuck Taylor 70s


What about the One Star ?

For a few years now, Converse has brought back to the forefront one of its iconic models: the One Star! Available in different colors, it is not made of canvas and is usually presented in suede.

One can easily argue that this sneaker is a classic among classics. Approved by the skateboarders of the 90s and the street more generally, wearing a One Star is a bit like wearing a piece of history on your feet.


Like the Chuck Taylor 70s, this one is designed with a thicker sole. This allows for optimal comfort in the heel. On the other hand, the ankle collar is slightly raised, which can give the feeling that the shoe is big. We advise our customers in the store and on the e-commerce site to take ½ 1 size lower than usual.

Example :

- I usually wear a 39 Eur => I take a 38 Eur on a One Star
   - I usually wear a 44 Eur => I take a 43.5 Eur on a One Star
