Key
Points
  • In an effort to further reduce its carbon footprint, Converse has been instructing its production and design teams to whip up earth-friendly footwear renditions.
  • After pushing out various Renew Knit iterations, it's now linking up with Beyond Retro " a vintage apparel retailer that is based out of the UK and Sweden " for a collection of Chuck 70 Hi "Tropical Shirt" colorways.
  • Each pair is manufactured from second hand Hawaiian button ups, and what's most interesting about this team-up is that no two pairs are styled in the same exact way.
  • When ordering, it's best to keep in mind that you will definitely receive a pair with vibrant, aloha-themed patterns that sprawl across the upper, but the exact types of floral graphics and colors aren't necessarily revealed until you unbox the kicks.
  • To further emphasize its sustainable theme, the Converse team created each take with 100% recycled laces, outsoles that are assembled with 13% recycled manufacturing waste as well as tongues and heel stays engineered with approximately 36% recycled polyester and 13% recycled cotton.
