For Spring/Summer 2019 Carhartt WIP has teamed up with Converse to create new variations of the iconic and versatile Chuck 70 – a contemporary iteration of the Chuck Taylor All Star – exclusive to Carhartt WIP stores.
Since its earliest days, Carhartt WIP has incorporated military motifs into its collections, reflecting the same spirit that has seen numerous subcultures repurpose military and workwear garments to create their own inimitable uniforms. For its first Chuck 70 iteration of the season, the canvas upper features a contemporary, reworked woodland camouflage print dubbed, ‘Camo Olive,’ with distinctive stitching. The second, fashioned in a ‘Brown Duck’ canvas upper with an egret colored midsole, is offset by a square Carhartt WIP label on the tongue.
Between the two styles, this release spans Carhartt WIP's storied heritage and its contemporary, utilitarian approach to design.
