As far as I can tell it’s exactly the same. Some may beg to differ. I’ve been wearing them since 1964.

they fit slightly larger, but not worth going down a half size, imo

Thanks @jett129 - I’ve had tons of converse, but never the 70s version - I completely understand the “hype”
Now - it’s hard to even compare them to the $38 version haha

congrats @Appfaff

my Chuck 70's are my favorites to wear when it's warmer out. Insanely comfortable and they look great with denim.

IHSH-129 size L (blue)
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-196 size L

I agree - the shape lends itself to looking great with jeans. Hope you enjoy yours a ton!
