In an effort to further reduce its carbon footprint, Converse has been instructing its production and design teams to whip up earth-friendly footwear renditions. After pushing out various Renew Knit iterations, it’s now linking up with Beyond Retro — a vintage apparel retailer that is based out of the UK and Sweden — for a collection of Chuck 70 Hi “Tropical Shirt” colorways.

Each pair is manufactured from second hand Hawaiian button ups, and what’s most interesting about this team-up is that no two pairs are styled in the same exact way. When ordering, it’s best to keep in mind that you will definitely receive a pair with vibrant, aloha-themed patterns that sprawl across the upper, but the exact types of floral graphics and colors aren’t necessarily revealed until you unbox the kicks. To further emphasize its sustainable theme, the Converse team created each take with 100% recycled laces, outsoles that are assembled with 13% recycled manufacturing waste as well as tongues and heel stays engineered with approximately 36% recycled polyester and 13% recycled cotton.

If you’re looking to purchase a pair, these island-ready kicks are available now via Converse’s web store for $95 USD.

Previously, Converse connected with The Ben Raemers Foundation for a Mental Health Awareness initiative.
