Milan retailer One Block Down and Converse have teamed up for a duo of collaborative Chuck 70s, entitled ‘Protect Your Icon’.
Inspired by industrial production techniques and conceptual design, the two colorways (black and parchment) recall Chuck’s essential timelessness and simple style. Each pair is also brushed by hand with resin, adding a unique flair.
The Chuck 70 is created with high-quality materials and finds a balance between experimentation and industrial production.
The black pair offers a look that’s almost two-tone, with the black canvas on its encased lower half looking blue from certain angles thanks to the aforementioned resin coating.
Meanwhile, the parchment maintains it is signature airy tones on both the upper and the midsole. A similar fabric tag appears on the lateral collar but offers inverse color-blocking by presenting white above black for a touch of dark contrast.
