Building on the popularity of their footwear collaborations, COMME des GARÇONS PLAY and Converse are set to introduce a reimagination of their Chuck 70 design.

Releasing in both Hi and Lo height options, the COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse Chuck 70 has been given bright red midsole and foxing setups. Accented by contrasting black or white pinstripe details, the new sole unit toolings serve to match the iconic heart-and-eyes logo found on the collaboration. As per usual, the black or white premium canvas uppers are stamped with co-branding and feature contrasting panel strips at the rear.

To unveil the reimagination of the COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse Chuck 70, co-Creative Directors Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Karl Bolander, alongside legendary fashion photographer Craig McDean, captured the shoes on a bold red backdrop. The shoes are playfully stacked in still life arrangements and highlighted through a digital processing technique called “Focus Stacking,” which serves to express a fresh new perspective on the upcoming release.

Priced at $150 USD, the red detailing updated COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse Chuck 70 will be available in Hi and Lo options March 24 at COMME des GARÇONS and Dover Street Market locations (excluding Japan), and online through DSM and Converse, followed by select retailers.
