Converse has extended its Renew initiative with the launch of the new Renew Tri Panel Denim collection. Focusing on the Chuck 70 silhouette — both high and low — the collection sees three different denim washes used on each shoe, with panels of dark blue, light blue and black denim.
The denim comes from UK-based sustainable brand and vintage retailer Beyond Retro, which sorts more than one million pairs of jeans a month. The denim is then cut out and repurposed with the dark wash used for the medial panel, the light wash on the tongue and the black denim used for the lateral panel. Due to the process of sourcing and sorting the denim washes, each shoe is one-of-a-kind.
As well as the upcycled denim pieces, the shoes also feature recycled polyester on both the upper lining and the laces. Take a look at the Renew Tri Panel Denim collection in the gallery above, and expect the pack to release on September 27 in China and October 3 in North America via the Converse web store.
Converse hasn’t slowed down its special drops, recently celebrating 80 years of Batman with a collaborative release.
