Converse has reimagined its Chuck 70 high-top with materials and colors that recall classic varsity jackets. The design makes use of an upper dressed in textured leather, accented with an oversized "C" wordmark on the lateral side, covered in a chenille fabrication in a contrasting hue. In addition to the letter patch, the shoe is distinguished by metal eyelets, reinforced toe cap and an off-white midsole. Offered in Enamel Red and Egret colorways, the special-edition Converse Chuck 70 High is available now at select Nike retailers, including Sneaker Politics.
