Converse‘s Renew line aims to offer sustainable iterations of the brand’s classic lifestyle silhouettes, and its latest product is a duo of Chuck 70s built from undyed factory scraps. Both the Chuck 70 Hi and Chuck 70 Ox are present, and each offers a sustainable, stripped-back look that’s 100% leather-free.

Both styles use a upcycled raw canvas upper with an unaltered “Egret” shade. This material is 40% virgin cotton and 30% organic cotton, and its natural demeanor is furthered with rough raised seams around the eyestays, toebox, heel strips and the Hi’s signature medial collar badge. Even the eyelets and toe cap are altered, trading out their metal and rubber builds in favor of thickly stitched thread and more canvas, respectively.

Midsoles do away with foxing and stripes, opting instead for an entirely monochromatic look. The only divergence from this single-colored construction is served up by the heel badges, which add black text and a direct nod to the Renew line. Brown rubber outsoles are recycled as well, with a speckled pattern provided by reused materials. The simple-yet effective palette presented by both of these Chucks can tell a story as well: as it gets dirty, it’ll present a unique, worn-in patina.

The Converse Renew Chuck 70 Hi and Ox are available now at retailers like Asphalt Gold. The Hi is priced at €95 EUR (approximately $103 USD), with the Ox arriving at €89 EUR (approximately $96 USD).

For more light-toned lifestyle silhouettes, peep Nike Sportswear‘s Air Streak Lite in “Summit White.”
