The long-standing partnership between Converse and Tyler, The Creator’s GOLF WANG, continues to grow stronger as the two companies introduced the Converse Chuck 70 Owl Low, their latest product in a long line of joint ventures.
The most recent launch perfectly illustrates this creativity. The traditional silhouette is resurrected and revamped with inspiration from nature.
Tyler, the designer’s exclusive GOLF WANG x Converse Chuck 70 Owl edition just hit the sneaker market on July 1, 2022. Interested buyers can visit the Converse and GOLF WANG e-commerce sites. Additionally, a few other selected merchants will also offer these $100 shoes worldwide.
Tyler, the Creator’s GOLF WANG redesigned the Converse Chuck 70 shoe with owl prints
Earlier, in March of this year, the duo dropped another collaborative version of the same low-top Chuck 70 silhouette. This iconic style was previously dressed in textured ‘Python’ overlays and was introduced in two vibrant colorways: ‘Blue Topaz’ and “Pink Dogwood”. These couples were also guided by the palette of nature and wildlife.
Along the same lines, Converse and GOLF WANG recently shared information about their latest release on their IG grips. This edition will only offer one pair, which will once again be influenced by Mother Nature, mainly owls and not reptiles!
According to Converse’s official website, the latest collaborative launch is described as follows:
“Born from his latest subversive apparel drop, Tyler, The Creator mixes woodland camo with unique owl detailing on the high-end Chuck 70. Featuring majestic snowy owls, winter trees and pops of blue lively, it’s the kind of irreverent, unexpected take on our finest – an icon that could only come from the mind of Tyler, the creator.
Regarding the design inspiration of these shoes, Converse official website mentions,
“Inspired by the latest GOLF WANG apparel collection, Tyler, The Creator brings a unique owl camo print to the Chuck 70.”
The upper of the shoe, which is constructed entirely using 12oz poly-canvas, is loaded with graphics of snowy owl prints. In addition to the owl-inspired designs, the maple leaf graphics can also be seen wrapping the tongues as well as the lateral sides of the top.
The graphics used to embrace them are a nod to their recently introduced Spring/Summer 2022 collection, which was designed by Tyler, The Creator. Track jackets and baggy pants sporting similar designs and aesthetics were part of this line that debuted in June.
Next, small circular metal rings are fitted as eyelets that hold off-white lace ties. These limited-edition low-top shoes also feature light blue stripes placed along the foxing tape.
Additionally, the inner liners are done with similar neutral tones with similar hues on the insole. The insole is decorated with Converse and GOLF lettering in black.
For the uninitiated, Chuck 70 shoes are loved for their comfortable OrthoLite insoles. Hence, these midsoles are the USP of these pairs. Ultimately, the brownish gum rubber outsole underneath completes the Chuck 70 Owl shoes.
Don’t forget to grab these GOLF WANG x Converse Chuck 70 Owl shoes which are now available on both brands’ shopping sites. You can also buy them from other retailers. Each pair will cost you $100.
