The New Converse Chuck 70 Canvas LTD Literally Gets Elevated
Its thick lug sole unit feature a contrasting layer and a treaded outsole.
Converse is the quintessence of classic Americana, and the Chuck 70 is the quintessence of Converse. Despite being an icon, the One Star brand doesn’t exempt the model from any experimentation. Thus, the Chuck 70 Canvas LTD, which introduces two new elements into its soles. The top layer bearing its original tooling, the bottom retrofitted with treaded outsoles, reminiscent of boots, oxfords, and other similar footwear.
Coming in both low and high-top trims, the pair retains its standard canvas body. Therein are its hallmarks such as the Converse-branded patch and silver metallic eyelets. Through them are the laces, this time given a luxury update. In place of the standard flat strings, leather secures the shoe in a straight bar style that is typically seen on more formal options.
Both designs are available now at select retailers like BTSN in “Natural” and “Black”. Go get yours for 189.99 EUR (~US$205).
