When Tyler, The Creator, started working on this collaboration with Converse, we soon realised that it was a match we didn’t even know we needed. He is back with another pair of crazy kicks. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you to The Converse x Golf Wang Chuck 70.
This collaboration with Converse is very exciting news for sneaker lovers like myself for a number of reasons. Firstly, their collaborations results in bold creations and patterns which are an extension of Tyler’s personality. Secondly, these collaborations generally consist of premium materials, meaning that you get better quality items. Lastly, these shoes are generally not as hyped as other collaborations with celebrities like as Virgil Abloh, Kanye West or Jerry Lorenzo so Hypebeasts don’t target them. This means they’re more easily available for purchase without worrying about paying double or even three times the retail price.
These shoes are an absolute classic. They are the Chuck 70’s which feature a thicker and more durable sole than the normal Chuck 70’s. They also seem to be a touch wider than the normal Chuck Taylors. The shoe sports an OrthoLite insole which adds a big boost to the comfort.
The upper consists of a washed denim. There are also polka dots which go around the whole shoe, including the sole, which go extremely well with the washed denim. On top of it all, the shoe also comes with the classic Golf Wang box which is the cherry on the top.
