2020 has been an undeniably bountiful year for fans of Converse‘s Chuck 70. From sustainable Renew iterations made of everything from recycled factory scraps to repurposed denim plus appealing collaborations with COMME des GARÇONS PLAY and Carhartt WIP, a veritable smorgasboard of the upgraded Chuck Taylor has been served to the ever-adoring public, Now, the Chuck 70 Hi is back in the spotlight once again by way of a “Hacked Archive” pack — two camouflage-style makeups with intricate camouflage paneling.
Chucks are certainly no stranger to camo patterns, but things are done a little different here. Instead of a standard printed camo graphic, each shoe is built of multiple pieces, stitched together for a true patchwork style. A “Dark Moss/Egret” colorway weaves together an autumnal mix of tan, olive, black and orange with white thread. Meanwhile, “Egret/Nomad Khaki” serves up a desert-centric style with black and tan leather pieces secured to its white canvas upper. This provides a layered look that’s almost leopard print-esque in nature. Each also features a signature Converse star badge on the lateral collar, and is completed with high-gloss rubber toe caps plus midsoles with black foxing.
The Converse Chuck 70 Hi “Hacked Archive” pack is available now via the Converse webstore. Each pair is priced at $90 USD.
