We're not exaggerating when we say that the Kim Jones x Converse Chuck 70 may be the One Star brand's best collaboration yet. First teased earlier this year as part of the 2021 Starting Lineup, it has just been unveiled in all its glory, and it's a definite must-cop!
Revealed in two clean cut colourways including "White" and "Black", the British fashion designer's take on the classic gives it a somewhat contemporary makeover. Working on top of a canvas base, Jones has added a secondary layer that adds extra support and structure to the Chuck 70. It also acts as part of the lacing system, with eyelets that switch between the traditional steel ring and a hiking boot inspired hook.
On top of all of this, the Dior Homme Creative Director has applied a much chunkier rubber midsole that's double stacked for added height. To round it all off, his name is printed in all-caps on the tongue, finalising the coveted Converse collab.
Launching on April 8th, the Kim Jones x Converse Chuck 70 Collection is a must-have this season. Let us know which colourway you're feeling the most, and while you're here, you might as well take your first look at the COMME des GARÇONS x Converse Jack Purcell!
