Converse and Carhartt come together for a new collaboration which highlights the Converse Chuck 70.

Converse and Carhartt are brands meant to be worn. Embracing the fit, story and style of a wearer… carefully crafted canvas items tell a personal story over time. As Converse continues the expansion of its upcycling textile capabilities through Renew – an ongoing initiative to develop new, innovative and more sustainable ways of creating Converse products — Carhartt work garments becomes the second example of Converse’s capacity to turn single-source upcycled textiles into footwear.

1,000 pre-loved canvas Carhartt work jackets, trousers and overalls, sourced from UK-based fashion & vintage retailer, Beyond Retro, were sorted into three color ranges – Navy, Black and Brown – then and butterfly cut to create individual Chuck 70 shoe panels.

Each pair of the Chuck 70 showcases the craftsmanship long celebrated by the brands. And, the Tri-Panel execution allows stitching details, characteristic of the Carhartt WIP brand, to stand at the forefront of the minimalist design.

With the introduction of the Carhartt WIP x Converse Renew Chuck 70, Converse has diverted more than 108,000 textile items from landfills. These textiles have resulted in new Converse classics and demonstrate what a more mindful future can look like for the brand.

The collection will be available in limited quantities at Converse.com, Carhartt-WIP.com and select retailers starting May 28, 2020.
