Iconic streetwear label STÜSSY unveils a new collaboration with a brand from the Nike, Inc. conglomerate. After offering us a trio of Nike Air Max 2013/2015 a few days ago, Shawn Stussy and his team have teamed up with Converse to reimagine the famous Chuck 70.
After a few difficult years, Converse joined the Swoosh conglomerate in 2003. Since then, the projects have followed one another and some have even become bangers !
With Stüssy’s vision, the legendary Chuck 70s sports a bold, eye-catching look. The California-based label added its « Surfman » motif to the traditional silhouette.
The shoe consists of a hot pink hemp upper with a Surfman logo embroidered in black on the ankle instead of the usual star. The latter stands out discreetly on the inside of the off-white lining. Other small elements appear « hidden » or « modified », such as the Stüssy logo stamped on the inside of the tongue and the « All Star » label added on the tongue branding. To complete the look, the toebox appears in white rubber and the eyelets in metallic silver. A traditional white sole with black lines adds the finishing touch to the design.
The Stüssy x Converse Chuck 70 « Surfman » will be released on August 26, 2022 in select STÜSSY and DOVER STREET MARKET stores, as well as on stussy.com. It will then arrive online at converse.com on September 1st. Be ready !
