News on this release was first published on April 6, 2022.

Update May 13, 2022: If you're located Stateside then you can cop the A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Aeon Active CX in the Black/Apple Green colourway right now on SNKRS! For those everywhere else in the world you can secure your pair via the Converse web store.

When it comes to his design practice, A-COLD-WALL* founder Samuel Ross is a futurist who pushes the boundaries of form, function and materials. On the other hand, many would think of Converse as a company that's rooted in its heritage – they have produced timeless models like the Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star and Pro Leather, after all – but Converse knows how to go future-forward too, and the new A-COLD-WALL* x Converse Aeon Active CX is proof of that.

Converse says the new model is 'built for forward progress,' so it's fitting that it drew inspiration from running shoes – products that often set the comfort standard for the footwear industry. It's an easy-on, easy-off silhouette thanks to a stretch bootie construction and a unique heel kick, and its cushioning technology combines Converse's advanced CX foam with Nike's sustainable Crater Foam, which is constructed partly of scraps from factory floors. The top half is built from a mixture of perforated suede and leather, and special A-COLD-WALL* branding is scattered around the entire assemblage for a technical look.

Two colourways are set to release: 'Micro Chip/Healing Jade/Black' and 'Black/Black/Apple Green.' Each will see a staggered rollout, with the former arriving exclusively at the ACW* website April 6, then hitting the Converse website on April 12 and the latter releasing via ACW* April 8, then hitting Converse's online outpost more than a month later on May 12. The MSRP for each pair is set at $160.
