The iconic Chuck Taylor All Star is no stranger to premium makeovers — the popular First String ’70s releases continue to come off the line while the low-top take on the silhouette just popped up in an all-white leather-clad make-up earlier this week. Now BEAUTY & YOUTH is putting its own spin on the design, dropping two suede-constructed high-tops for Spring/Summer 2016.

Expect both variations to hit UNITED ARROWS next month.
