Editor’s Notes: Jonathan Anderson is gearing up to release the third and final capsule from his first-ever Converse collection. Dubbed “New_Classics,” the drop consists of the Chuck 70 U-Throat Ballet and the Chuck 70 XX Hi, once again drawing inspiration from the vintage ballet slipper, as elements have been reinterpreted with a modern juxtaposition of natural materials and a technical build.
“The vintage ballerina that inspired the shoe was actually more of a sport slipper in mesh,” says Anderson. “I liked the functionality and lightness of that shoe, and we decided to adopt some details to reinterpret the icon.”
You can look forward to the JW Anderson x Converse “New_Classics” collection launching April 4 online, as well as at JW Anderson stores and other retailers globally. The “Turtle Green” Chuck 70 XX Hi will be available solely through JW Anderson workshops and jw-anderson.com.
