Sweet sweet summer times are coming to America, and Nike are unleashing a limited run of a special Yankee pride Chuck Taylor All Stars to get the barbeques and good times rolling. This pair will freak some old folks out too, they're kinda like odd socks – the left sneaker is all navy backdrop and white stars while the right is red and dirty once-white stripes. A release on Nike, Inc. also boasts about some very American-spirited laces, 'The Vintage Flag Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 also includes three interchangeable red, white and blue laces that give you the freedom to customise your look, as well as a vintage license plate and nickel eyelets that add to the classic feel of the Chuck ‘70,' it reads. You catch that? You've got the FREEDOM, baby! Because you're in Amurrrica! Yeah! Only 1,300 pairs have been produced, and will be available at select Converse retailers throughout North America and on www.converse.com from Friday, May 23.
