Kim Jones just dropped a collab with Nike on the AM 95. Keeping his foot on the peddle, the English fashion designer will now be teaming up with Converse to release two unique iterations of the Converse Chuck 70.

The Kim Jones x Converse Chuck 70 Collection has Kim Jones taking cues from his studied knowledge of sportswear and streetwear to utilize  contemporary utilitarian elements to inform wonderfully subtle updates to the Converse Chuck 70.

“The design approach for the shoe was very straight forward — taking a classic shoe and then almost encasing it in something to protect it,” says Jones.

Details on the collection include a transparent TPU cage with speed lace eyelets that adhere to the refined 12-ounce canvas upper, providing reinforced foot stability. The outsole is also reengineered with an enhanced diamond grid to help increase traction on city streets. The shoe takes two tonal colorways, each with Kim Jones branding stamped on tongue and sockliner.

Look for the Kim Jones x Converse Chuck 70 Collection to release on April 8th at select retailers and Converse.com.
