TAKAHIROMIYASHITA The Soloist And Converse Create Armored Chuck 70s For SS20

Despite having a storied past with Converse under the number (n)ine imprint, Takahiro Miyashita of his somewhat newfound The Soloist label is forgoing any likeness to his past collaborations, forgoing the loose connections to his muse Kurt Cobain for one of futuristic, brutalist expression. Unlike his Jack Purcell that took on two sides of an American-dressed coin, his new line-up of Chuck 70s just barely resembles its starting point. The high-top construction remains the the most recognizable component loosely translated over as the nubuck uppers arrive defaced by minimal star logo appliques and a triangular patch denoting the “I AM THE SOLOIST” tagline in mirrored effect. Toe caps are smoothened out in a clean gloss with most of the eyes surely landing on the modified sole unit whose additional molds, extend back cap, and extra branding notes create a pair that blends in with the designer’s mainline. Grab a detailed look at both colorways, a white and black, right below and keep it locked in as more details arise on their official release.
