Jonathan Anderson is expanding his collaborations with Converse. Marking the third and last capsule, we have the ‘New Classics’ Collection.
Two models are included in this drop which includes the Converse Chuck 70 U-Throat Ballet and the Chuck 70 XX Hi. These two releases are inspired by the vintage ballet slipper while constructed with natural materials. Each will feature open cotton knit across the uppers, leather hits, a rubber foxing and a vulcanized sole.
“The vintage ballerina that inspired the shoe was actually more of a sport slipper in mesh,” says Anderson. “I liked the functionality and lightness of that shoe, and we decided to adopt some details to reinterpret the icon.”
The JW Anderson x Converse ‘New Classics’ Collection will release on April 4th at J.W. Anderson retailers including online at Nike.com. More images can be seen by scrolling below.
