The top of the Chuck Taylor All-Star '70 sneakers has leather and canvas inserts, which are protected by durable rubber and leather overlays, they are designed to protect shoes when riding a motorcycle.

For the One Star '74 model, Neighborhood designer Shinsuke Takizawa proposed a suede upper. The traditional Converse star on the All-Star '70 logo has turned into a pentagram, on the side of the sole of the sneakers there is the brand name Neighborhood. The insoles of both models are also decorated with logos.
