UPDATE: The crew from Livestock have put together an up close look at the Carhartt x Converse colab, revealing a third colourway with a dark camo pattern. All three are looking crispy clean, be sure to check them out when they drop on June 1.
Converse and Carhartt WIP have applied their shared love of classic styling to two new Chuck 70s. The low-top sneakers pay tribute to Carhartt’s utilitarian approach to design, keeping the flourishes to a minimum – with the only embellishments coming by way of gold eyelets on the white pair and small red accents on the midsoles of both. Though aesthetically subdued, the shoes come into their own in terms of construction. Staple workwear materials like drill and rip-stop have been triple-stitched on the eye rows and heels counters, while woven cotton laces round out a build that means business.
The Carhartt WIP x Converse Chuck 70 pack will be available on June 1 from select Converse and Carhartt WIP accounts.
