Offspring Tie Paisley Patchwork Bandanas to the Converse Chuck 70Release: 8 October 2020
Patchwork patterns and the Converse Chuck 70s are a match made in sneaker heaven. Throw in some Offspring and you’ve got three for a collaborative crowd. That’s exactly what’s happening with the UK boutique’s latest Cons colab, which is releasing very soon. This drop follows a similar execution to their multicoloured corduroy patchwork version that released about this time last year.
Two new editions of the high-cut Chuck 70 have been adorned with mix-n-match paisley bandana patches that appear to be sewn directly onto the canvas uppers. The segments are split unevenly for a purposely rough look, and adjacent panels go for the hard colour clash. One colourway draws on core Converse colours like black, red, and ‘Egret’ (aka off-white), while the other takes a more Neapolitan ice cream approach with a smattering of pastel tones like pistachio green and pale yellow. This theme is continued underfoot with the layered colours on the outsole. Other custom touches include coloured heel ‘license plates’ that continue the paisley print. Everything else is premium Converse quality, down to the heavyweight canvas, dense laces, and nickel eyelets.
The latest Offspring x Converse Chuck 70 collaborations will release exclusively at Offspring on October 8. If the last release is anything to go by, these might disappear sooner than you think.
