Feng Chen Wang is set to launch the 2-in-1 Chuck 70 which was seen during the NYFW show in 2018. A total of two colorways will be available.
More than two years ago, at the start of her ongoing collaboration with Converse, Feng Chen Wang, like many designers before her, requested pairs of the Converse Chuck 70 to complete her SS19 Menswear presentation at New York Fashion Week.
Wang captured the global attention of the creative community when she presented her vision of the canvas sneaker: a carefully deconstructed and delicately reassembled Chuck 70 concept shoe, complete with hand-painted details. Wang continued to tinker her concept through shape, style and color, and a few weeks later, debuted fresh iterations during her show in Shanghai.
Shortly after the show, Converse and Wang began work to figure out how to formalize the bold concept and bring it to wider audiences.
