Following last week’s collaboration with Tyler, the Creator, Converse has dropped yet another collab. This time around, the brand has joined forces with Canadian brand, Haven, for the Converse x Haven pack. The duo provides a fresh take on the Chuck 70 with a sophisticated and waterproof style.
In order to provide the weatherproof Chuck 70, the design team introduced the GORE-TEX material on the upper. The material is crafted from a blend of leather and suede, creating weather-ready tech. This approach emphasises Haven’s distinct mix of modern craftsmanship and functional design.
Further to this, the Converse x Haven Chuck 70 features GORE-TEX liners. This creates an additional layer of protection with a 100% waterproof GORE-TEX membrane.
The updated silhouette stays true to its roots, providing premium materials with the waterproof construction. Changes in the material highlight the classic design details, keeping to the classic Chuck 70 high-top aesthetic.
Haven is well-known for creating products that stand up to the harsh Canadian weather. The latest collaboration with Converse creates a stand-out silhouette, from the streets into the rough.
Additionally, the Chuck 70 detailing across the silhouette’s design. This includes a custom leather heel cap, toe cap and mudguard. As with the other materials, these also provide weather protection. Finally, the sneaker design is rounded off by means of the OrthoLite insole for added comfort.
The sneaker will be available in two colourways. This includes Black/Egret as well as FOREST NIGHT/EGRET.
The Converse x Haven Chuck 70 is available online at converse.co.za, as well as exclusively at Converse Sandton City store. It retails for R1,499.
