Cat scratched, whiskered and otherwise distressed denim reached its peak in the mid-2000s as abrasions and even paint splatters made their mark on the decade’s jeans. The fashion world’s grown and sexy lean in recent years sees these styles de-emphasized in favor of a more ‘clean’ look, but they’ll never go away because this is just what happens when you love a garment for a long time. Fitting, then, to see the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star in navy denim, a release whose vintage appeal and blackened sole create some overlap with the ongoing John Varvatos capsule. Check these rugged denim Chucks out in more images below, then grab yours at retailers like Titolo.
