The line is named Converse Shapes, gender-agnostic clothing based on Chuck Taylor’s own approach to creating unisex silhouettes for modern consumers. The designs are based around body shapes instead of gender, shifting the focus to using size as a reference point over identity.

According to VP of Global Apparel at Converse, Jonathan Tappan, “When starting the design from a non-traditional place there are endless opportunities to reimagine everything from construction to sizing to materials. SHAPES is the perfect example of how to meet the consumer in their element. By bringing functionality, inclusivity, and comfort to everyday clothes, we believe we can really change the game.”
