British fashion label JW Anderson is back with yet another project with Converse. This time, the partners have collaborated on high and low versions of the Chuck 70.
The upcoming release is inspired by designer Jonathan Anderson's love of art and ceramic sculptures, in particular. Four pairs in total—two low and two high—will make up the collection. Each is given a glossy patent leather upper, translucent midsole and toe cap, and thick cloth laces made to resemble the stucco of San Francisco. The high-top versions sport a debossed Chuck Taylor All Star logo on the medial ankle. Both iterations have "JWA" branding stamped on the lateral heel as well.
JW Anderson has collaborated on three previous releases with the iconic footwear brand. Most notably, the pairing dropped two pairs of Chuck Taylor All Star '70s covered in glitter as a part of the "Glitter_Gutter" collection back in December 2017.
This upcoming collab initially appeared on the runway at JW Anderson's Fall/Winter 2018 show at London Fashion Week this past February.
Look for the JW Anderson x Converse Chuck 70 "Toy" collection to hit converse.com and other select retailers on Thursday, July 19 for $140 (low-top) and $150 (high-top), respectively.
