The respective blank canvases of Carhartt WIP and Converse products have long served individuals and their own personal sense of style, developing a unique look and characteristics through repeat wear. This forms the basis of the brands’ latest collaboration, which sees a one-of-a-kind Chuck 70 created from upcycled Carhartt canvas fabrics.
No two pairs of the resulting Chuck 70s are exactly alike: 1,000 pre-worn canvas Carhartt work jackets, trousers and overalls, sourced from UK-based fashion and vintage retailer Beyond Retro, were sorted into three color ranges – Navy, Black and Brown – and then butterfly cut to create individual Chuck 70 shoe panels.
Each pair of the Chuck 70 showcases the craftsmanship championed by both brands, while the Tri-Panel execution places emphasis on the patina and stitching details typically associated with Carhartt WIP garments.
