Brand: Rick Owens x Converse
Model: DRKSTAR Chuck 70
Release Date: February 22, 2022
Price: $195 (High), $190 (Low)
The rebellious match-made-in-heaven are dropping new colors to the DRKSTAR Chuck 70, swapping the monochromatic colorways of their previous Chuck Taylors collaboration. For this time around, white dresses the low-top sneaker while the high-tops make its presence known in black.
The DRKSTAR Chucks maintain its dramatically long tongue and bulky bumpers on the heel and toecap while sitting up high on its exaggerated sole. Backing off from 2021's square-toed Chuck 70, the model also keeps its rounded toe, thankfully making the shoe more wearable but still dramatic nonetheless.
Simply put, Owens himself says he "FRANKENSTEINED THE CLASSIC CHUCK TAYLOR." His unorthodox design codes, including the DRKSHDW SS14 Ramones, fuse with Converse's timeless model to bring life to a new creature — that is, the stitched-up cotton twill DRKSTAR Chuck 70s.
Once again, a new baseball cap and backpack join the mix, flaunting co-branded details in Rick Owens' typical, edgy faded black and cream colors.
Even after a quick color trade-off, the DRKSTAR Chuck 70 is still undoubtedly a solid piece of footwear, ready to mix-match with last year's offering or become a new classic all on its own.
