The final release of Off-White Creative Director Virgil Abloh‘s “The Ten“ collection of tricked out takes on iconic kicks, features one of the most legendary sneaker silhouettes: The Converse Chuck Taylor.
The only non-Nike shoe in the bunch (well, not totally true, since the brand acquired Converse in 2003), Abloh applies his trademark “GHOSTING” technique to the Chuck 70, with a translucent upper exposing the design’s inner makeup.
News of the forthcoming drop started buzzing last year, and after dreaming about the sneakers for months, you can finally make them yours. Nike released a few pairs earlier this week, but the shoe hits select retailers again tomorrow. The see-through upper with an ice blue tint, trademark zip-tie accent, quote marks and “VULCANIZED” printed on the outsole will make you do a double take.
With his recent Louis Vuitton appointment, Abloh is on fire. And true to form, he’s releasing the kicks in limited quantities, so you’d better do your due diligence to get your hands ’em.
Cop the Off-White x Converse Chuck 70 for $130 on May 12 at select retailers like Kith, RSVP Gallery, Undefeated, Bodega, Concepts and more. Check out the full list of shops here.
