Model: Chuck 70
Key Features: The classic Chuck ’70 is reworked by the London-based, Chinese-born designer Feng Chen Wang, taking inspiration from the A-6 Pilot Winter Flying shoe. The overall shape of the classic sneaker remains the same, albeit for extra leather panels running across the upper resulting in a bulkier silhouette.
Release Date: November 15
Buy: The collaboration will be exclusively available in China and South Korea
Editor’s Notes: Feng Chen Wang and Converse’s partnership enters its second season with a SS20 collection that comprises both apparel and footwear. The range of apparel includes an inaugural 8-piece womenswear capsule, while the footwear continues to reinterpret some of Converse’s most iconic silhouettes. This time the Chuck 70 takes inspiration from the A-6 Pilot Winter Flying shoe, a boot that was previously crafted by Converse for the US Air Force.
Feng says “Converse is very similar to us in that they are also a brand filled with energy and passion, and, one that is brave enough to test new designs and forego a template. When you are unsure if you will succeed or fail, you simply create. Think about the most difficult think you can ever think and make it happen.”
