Slam Jam recently dropped off a hand-dyed collection with Brain Dead, and now the Italian brand has worked with Converse on a pair of “Reconstructed” Chuck 70 sneakers. The new styles take on a “Frankenstein”-esque aesthetic marked by prominent stitched lines that offer two looks in one shoe.

There is a navy and black version, as well as a white and beige edition in the upcoming pack. The darker iteration of the duo features all-black on the lateral side of the shoe and blue on the medial, while stitching from the tongue to the toe cap evokes a dual design. A colorblocked midsole continues the split effect, in addition to the outsole which is halfway coated in blue. Exposed stitching is added on the back heel and at the branding patch on the side panels to complete the sewn-on look. Meanwhile, the lighter style breaks up the silhouette between the top half of the upper (crafted in white canvas) and the bottom (colored beige). Stitched details rest at the quarter panel to “hold” each compartment in place, while the mended Converse emblem rounds it all out.

The Converse “Reconstructed” Chuck 70 launches on April 13 exclusively at the Converse Studio 70 pop-up powered by Slam Jam in Milan. It will be available for purchase at Slam Jam’s website and store beginning April 15.
