Kim Jones Reveals His Take on the Converse Chuck 70
Release: 8 April 2021

Following quickly behind his recent Nike Air Max 95 colab, Dior Homme head honcho Kim Jones has revealed his take on the inimitable Converse Chuck 70.

Taking cues from sportswear and streetwear, Jones brings a utilitarian aesthetic to the legendary silhouette. The standout changes see the canvas upper encased in a wraparound TPU cage, while an exaggerated foxing provides protection and extra attitude down below. Adding a dash of outdoor vibes, the menswear designer employs a speed-lace system for a sleek look and easy on/off. Further tweaks like ‘Kim Jones’ branding on the tongue and co-branded inner soles remix the well-known model, and add some finer Jones touches.

Jones has reworked the construction, but he’s kept the colours classic. The first make-up sees a go-to combination of black and egret, while the second goes au natural in Natural Ivory.

This lush duo is primed for imminent release – look for them to hit Converse stockists on April 8.
