Converse’s line of sustainable versions of iconic silhouettes, Renew, has come back with a launch of the classic Converse Chuck Taylors, made entirely with undyed scraps from the factories. Both the Chuck 70 Hi, and the Chuck 70 Ox have been given this 100% leather free, sustainable, and minimalistic treatment.
Both silhouettes employ upcyled canvas, which gives the pair a looks which feels vintage, but also new at the same time. The composition is 40% virgin cotton, with 30% organic cotton, and its natural look is further complicated with raw seams and edges, and stitched in eyelets and toecaps, instead of the normal metal pieces.
The midsole of the shoe looses its fancy features, opting for a minimal and plain monochromatic sole. The only real contrast on the pair is from the heel badges, with their black text. The outsole is brown, and made of recycled material also, which is why there is a spekle effect to the shoe. This is one of the few monochromatic shoes which will look a lot better the more you wear them and break them in.
The Converse Renew Chuck 70 Hi, and Ox, are both available now at retail stores such as Asphalt Gold. The Hi model has a retail price tag of 95 Euros, and the Ox is priced at 89 Euros.
