Expanding the Converse Renew program, the Converse x Carhartt WIP Renew Chuck 70 uses single-source upcycled textiles from the famed work garment brand.

One thousand pre-owned canvas Carhartt work jackets, trousers and overalls, sourced from UK–based fashion and vintage retailer, Beyond Retro, were sorted into three color ranges and then cut to create individual Chuck 70 shoe panels. 

The tri-panel execution on each pair highlights stitching details characteristic of the Carhartt WIP brand. Including the Converse x Carhartt WIP Renew Chuck 70, the Converse Renew program has diverted more than 108,000 textile items from landfills.

The collection will be available in limited quantities at converse.com, carhartt-wip.com and select retailers May 28.
