MADNESS Add Hairy Suede to the Converse Chuck 70
Shawn Yue's MADNESS has given the Chuck 70 a little makeover, joining Converse for a special collaborative edition of the beloved high-top. Built atop the usual white rubber foxing, with black stripes and a gum rubber outsole, the colab sees an upper of deep royal blue. However, instead of merely employing the Chuck 70's usual heavy duty canvas, Yue and company elected for asymmetrical material blocking and utilised hairy suede on the lateral side to go with details like heel pull tabs and printed medial branding badges.
The special Chuck 70 will be available from MADNESS beginning October 17.
