Three styles salute Mickey in three different ways.

To accompany its full Mickey Mouse apparel collection with Disney, KITH has also teamed with Converse for three Mickey-themed takes on the Chuck 70. KITH is no stranger to using the Chuck as a canvas for collaborative projects — think Coca-Cola — but here it’s especially poignant, as the silhouette is the rare product with a history that’s as long and storied as Disney’s signature character.

Each pair in the collection acknowledges Mickey’s impact in a different fashion. First up is a supple black leather iteration, one that features a selection of debossed prints running directly above the midsole. These graphics nod to Mickey’s lineage, starting with a black-and-white Steamboat Willie drawing from the ’20s by the heel before crescendoing with a modern-day Mickey right by the toebox. Next, a classic parchment-colored canvas style equips generational portraits of Mickey by the lateral and medial sides of its throat, even using his ears as detailing on the metal eyelets.

Finally, a soft sherpa fleece style calls upon a quite literal interpretation, with a black and red fleece upper inspired by Mickey’s fur and the color of his coat/signature suspenders. The styles are completed by signature KITH branding on the midsole, and offer co-branded insoles.

All three pairs will be available via the KITH webstore on November 18. The retail price for each is set at $140 USD.
