Feng Chen Wang Launches Her Converse Chuck 70 ‘2-in-1’Release: 20 October 2020
Feng Chen Wang is about to launch her latest Converse colab: the intriguing Chuck 70 ‘2-in-1’. Set to debut in two distinct colourways, the new silhouette features the bold layering that Feng is becoming known for, as she continues to add to her impressive range of sneaker collaborations.
According to Converse, ‘The Chuck 70 2-in-1 unifies two alternate sizes of Chuck 70 to converge form and style in one approach. Not dissimilar to the exploration of layering often seen in Wang’s eponymous brand and her recent Converse collaborations, the silhouette is crafted with “two” in mind: a paired organic canvas overlay, double-layered foxing tape and a modified outsole, spliced into four quadrants.’
The end result is a genuine reimagining of a classic sneaker, while the bold combination of two sole units provides the wearer with added flex in more ways than one. The duality theme continues with the double-lace loop that allows for alternative styling. Elsewhere, Feng Chen Wang branding hits the heel, sockliner and laces. The initial colourways feature an orange and cream combination, plus a black and white option.
Pairs of both colourways of the Feng Chen Wang x Converse Chuck 70 ‘2-in-1’ will be available on October 20 from Nike and selected Swoosh stockists.
