Release Date: Available now
Buy: Highsnobiety Shop
What We’re Saying: Converse has given its iconic Chuck 70 countless updates over the years. The latest is a winter-ready beast that is built to withstand whatever the elements throw your way. The sneaker is officially dubbed the “Climate Escapism” Chuck 70 Hi, and is available at Highsnobiety Shop today.
The sneaker features a modified build, which sees the height of the Chuck 70 extended to turn it into more of a boot. Materials have been updated as well, as the upper pairs rugged polyester with hairy suede overlays, that have been placed to help create a lockdown fit. The ankle collar features added padding for increased protection and comfort. A special outsole with modified lugs for increased traction makes sure you won’t lose your footing in slick weather.
Converse has put a lot of thought into this winterized sneaker-boot, placing warmth, protection, and traction at the very top of the priority list. Check out the sneaker above and shop it below.
