Converse Delivers Futuristic Form With the New Sponge Crater

  • The Converse Sponge Crater introduces a disruptive new design language with a new last, shape and proportion for Converse.
  • The unique silhouette is a testament to Converse’s continual reinvention.
  • The mule-cut Converse Sponge Crater is formed with a sculpted Crater Foam body for max comfort and reductive design innovation. It incorporates a knit sock upper for cozy comfort and ease of entry, and egg crate–style traction pods and a PU Foam CX sock liner for all-day comfort.

The unique, avant-garde design of the mule-cut Converse Sponge Crater delivers a fresh shape and proportion to Converse’s design language. “It is both an exploration and exaggeration of Crater Foam as a comfort material and a study in reducing complexity.

It is made of only a few components, most notably our first full cage structure crafted from Crater Foam, which speaks to the silhouette’s design and also plays a part in helping ensure comfort,” says Matt Sleep, Design Director, Energy at Converse.

A CX Foam underfoot and flat-knit upper are nestled within the Crater Foam body structure. Both contribute to the shoe’s overall comfort and drive its “less-is-more” aesthetic.

The Sponge Crater launches this week through a limited edition with A-COLD-WALL*. “Our relationship is all about pushing boundaries. A-COLD-WALL* founder Samuel Ross has brought many things to our collaboration, but none more important than his way of seeing and understanding the symbiotic nature of the form and ‘feel’ of a product,” says Sleep.

The Converse x A-COLD-WALL* Sponge Crater will be available June 23 on and, and at select retailers. The inline Converse Sponge Crater release later this year.
