Converse has continued its string of tri-color releases through a new sustainable collaboration with Carhartt WIP. The latest drop features the Renew Chuck 70 silhouette, which has been produced from vintage Carhartt work jackets, trousers and overalls — all sourced from Beyond Retro.

These pre-loved items have been sorted into three different color options, navy, black and brown, before being butterfly cut to create individual Chuck 70 panels. As each of these pieces is vintage and has its own unique patina, no two pairs of shoes from the latest Carhartt WIP x Converse release are exactly the same.

The upcycled fabrics are stitched together in a tri-panel construction, meaning that each pair from the collaboration features a black, navy and beige panel. Finishing off the design is exposed stitching and Carhartt WIP branding on the tongue and heel.

Take a look at the Carhartt WIP x Converse Renew Chuck 70 in the gallery above. The upcycled sneaker is set to release via the Converse web store, Carhartt site and select retailers on May 28.
