Chuck 70 E260 Hi ‘White’
Possibly borrowing elements from Nike’s newer and more inventive series or maybe taking design cues from newfound collaborator Feng Chen Wang, Converse further dives into the odd with a mainline release met with many a fused component. Though the Chuck 70 has undergone zippers and even motorcycle inspired renditions, none compare to its latest ERX260 fusion whose namesake is so fittingly dubbed the Chuck 70 E260 Hi. A true piecemeal creation, the pair evokes connection to both overtly and surprisingly; soles are ripped straight from the casual high top with parts of its uppers framing the guise of the much more imposing silhouette. Where once leather added bulk now lies a construction almost entirely of canvas with add-ons taking on the general depiction of both as if a son in his father’s clothing.
