Converse‘s popular Chuck 70 Hi has arrived in the form of new colorways that are boldly styled with patchwork uppers and plant-inspired colors. These GR variations surface shortly after the silhouette was unveiled in collaborative form with luxury fashion designer Kim Jones.
Base layers of these casual sneakers alternate its materials between its lateral and medial paneling and are devised with Japanese-produced nylon woven called “Onibegie.” As far as the colors of the shoes go, both pairs are crafted with 50% natural dye derived from onion and grape skins merged with other plant materials, and that’s what gives them their vibrant complexions. The medial side patches are situated in its usual spot, and come whipped up with black leather foundations and cream-colored Converse branding. Midsoles are prepped with the customary “Sail” hues and glossy finishes, while black accents sprinkle to the piping that sits just above. Moreover, the Converse bumper sticker is predominantly outfitted in black and features off-white lettering.
