CONVERSE X CARHARTT WIP CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STARS
We love a good mash-up, and the collaboration between these two venerable brands might be one of our all time favorites. The Converse x Carhartt WIP collection features three Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70s Ox sneakers, each style utilizing the classic workwear-inspired Carhartt WIP fabrics of Tiger Camo Ripstop, White Drill, and Hamilton Duck Canvas. Bringing the utilitarian Carhartt influence to the iconic Converse All Star silhouette, the collection highlights everyday wearability and quality craftsmanship.
Converse and Carhartt are two heritage brands rich in both sports history and American culture. The Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star, introduced in 1932, is the original basketball shoe, and Carhartt, founded in 1889 was one of the first American companies to pioneer workwear in the USA. Carhartt WIP tailors the company’s core product design to a new consumer who values the brand’s origins while looking for a more modern design and fit. Converse x Carhartt WIP collection perfectly integrates both brands’ distinct culture and aesthetic.
The Converse x Carhartt WIP Chuck Taylor ‘70s Ox sneaker features triple-stitch workwear detailing on the canvas upper and red bar tack stitching on the outsole — similar to those used to reinforce stress-points on the chore coats. Also featured are metal eyelets to match the buttons and rivets on the original workwear. Converse x Carhartt WIP Chuck Taylor ‘70s Ox sneakers retail for $100 and are available at Converse.com and Carhartt-wip.com.
