Converse Chuck 70 Renew

May 17, 2020

Last Year, Converse spearheaded a new program using upcycled materials. They dropped three colorways last year and this year, they have released the tri-color collection that is out now. The prices run between $65-$95 depending on the style and the colors.The materials all look really great and retro, more so than some of the new fresh materials in the average Chuck Taylor. However, as you can see, you will pay a little bit more for these.

Here is more information on the Converse Renew process:

Converse Renew’s Three Processes

1.  Renew Canvas: the same feel and look as traditional Converse canvas, except now made from 100 percent recycled polyester that came from used plastic bottles.

2. Renew Denim: using an in-house upcycling process, denim jeans that were diverted from landfills serve as the first example of Converse’s capacity to turn single-source upcycled textiles into a Chuck Taylor All Star or Chuck 70.

3. Renew Cotton: this proprietary process transforms cotton canvas waste from the manufacturing process to create a composite 40 percent recycled cotton with polyester to form a new yarn. (In future seasons, additional recycled blends will be explored.)
