Converse x DRKSHDW

In the first drop of an ongoing collaboration with DRKSHDW, fashion designer Rick Owens rebels against the ubiquitous on the Chuck 70. With a punk mindset and modern minimalist aesthetic, he distorts the classic lines of our most iconic silhouette. Break from convention with the TURBODRK Chuck 70. And a punk rebellion against the ubiquitous. Rick Owens crafts a Chuck 70 unlike any other. And it’s only the beginning for Converse x DRKSHDW.

The details (TURBODRK Chuck 70 Hi):
Break from convention with the TURBODRK Chuck 70, created by one of fashion’s essential iconoclasts Rick Owens. The subversive design both celebrates and distorts the lines of our best-ever silhouette—literally stretching the possibilities with an elongated tongue and applying the first square-toe execution in its century of existence. The cotton-twill upper and refined finishes add polish and couture-like sophistication to the design’s edgy look and exaggerated features. It’s the bold reinvention of a street classic. And a punk rebellion against the ubiquitous. Rick Owens crafts a Chuck 70 unlike any other.
