Converse Renew the Chuck Taylor
Release: 10 July 2019

Chanting the eco-friendly mantra ‘Life’s Too Short To Waste’, Converse have created a Chuck Taylor All Star with an upper made completely from recycled plastic.

Under the new ‘Renew’ banner, this Chuck Taylor’s upper and laces were once plastic bottles, now recycled and woven into canvas. The outsole appears to be from recycled compounds too, with its speckled appearance. Stitched eyelet reinforcement saves using metal too.

If the large lateral text callout did not make Converse’s eco message clear enough, the heel tab also proudly displays ‘Renew’. They are available now from Warsaw Sneaker Store.
