JW Anderson and Converse have joined forces on a third joint effort, following on the heels of the "Glitter_Gutter" and "Simply_Complex" collections. Here, the featured silhouettes take the form of the Chuck 70 XX Hi and Low, inspired by a vintage ballet slipper with an open cotton knit build on the upper with leather detailing. Commenting on the ballet slipper, Anderson says, "I liked the functionality and lightness of that shoe, and we decided to adopt some details to reinterpret the icon."

Available in Turtle Green and Black colorways, the kicks drop April 4th at converse.com and j-w-anderson.com, as well as JW Anderson stores and select retailers globally. The Chuck 70 XX Hi in Turtle Green will be offered exclusively through JW Anderson Workshops and jw-anderson.com.

Release Date: 4/4/18 (Wednesday)
