Since its partnership, Converse and Tyler, The Creator have produced some of the more bold creation for the brand. Dating back to 2017, the GOLF le FLEUR collection has features a vast mix of materials, designs and colours. The team have once again joined forces to drop the Converse x GOLF WANG Chuck 70.
In keeping with its quirky take on fashion, Tyler, The Creator brings another fresh take on the classic Chuck 70. Switching out the classic canvas upper for a washed denim forms the based of the sneaker.
The GOLF WANG Chuck 70 features premium craftsmanship through the high-top design. Its bold statement is scattered from top to bottom in the form of rainbow polka dots. This even extends to the outsole as well.
While the design may not deviate too much from the GOLF WANG archives, the iconic patterns and materials are based on the first runway show back in 2016. The latest drop, then, reemphasises the funky archival print aesthetic as the signature style.
In addition to the tweaks on the upper and outsole, an elevated level of comfort and durability was produced on the GOLF WANG Chuck 70. This was achieved by means of co-mouled outsole for durability. Comfort is enhanced through the OrthoLite insole.
To round of the customisation, the Converse x GOLF WANG Chuck 70 features GOLF WANG branding on the sock liner.
