Converse Wraps The Chuck 70 In Durable Tyvek Exteriors

feature image

With roots dating back to the baseball scene in the ’70s, the Converse Chuck 70 has become one of the most iconic lifestyle propositions of all time. Having gone through a variety of new material makeups such as leather, the often-canvas high top is getting one of its most creative iterations yet by opting for waterproof Tyvek uppers covered in branded graphics.

Using white as a base color, the raincoat-like uppers are patterned with DuPont and Tyvek’s red and blue logo on the medial side. This side also features a blue gridded pattern midfoot, adding to the graphic design. On the lateral side, the repeated logos have been switched out for a red crosshatch pattern while the midfoot displays a single oversized logo. The alternating designs between the two sides make for a playful look that is unexpected of the hazmat suit-maker. As a finishing touch, the classic All-Star patch receives an all-white finish—also in Tyvek material—to retain the Converse heritage.

The pair is available at select European retailers such as HANON for approximately $120 USD.

In other news, the Nike Air Presto is making its seasonal return with a triple black colorway.
