Converse x DRKSHDW TurboDrk Chuck 70

For its latest release Converse has teamed up with one of the fashion industry’s greats Rick Owens for the creation and launch of an alternate interpretation of the brand’s classic Chuck Taylor shoe. Rick Owens’ interpretation of the iconic silhouette has been named the Converse x DRKSHDW TurboDrk Chuck 70 and has been reshaped with a square toe and an extension of the shoe tongue in the classic black and white colorway, creating a balance between modern minimalism and contemporary luxury. This hybrid model also echoes a few aspects of Owens’ DRKSHDW SS14 Ramones , which were originally created years ago as a subversive interpretation of the Chuck Taylor All Star. Multi-disciplinary brand Fecal Matter are the ideators of the shoes’ launch campaign that fuses the mood of Rick Owens aesthetic with the importance of one of culture’s most prominent shoe silhouettes.
