Revealed last week, South Korean label ADER error has joined forces with Converse to reimagine the Chuck 70. The pair taps into ADER error’s “The new is not new” design philosophy that connects past and present with cues from classic looks.
Distorting an aged look with a deconstructed aesthetic, the duo has equipped the old-school Chuck 70 with various collaborative elements. An asymmetric presentation sees both shoes featuring blue cut-outs of canvas attached from the toes to the collar. The left shoe carries “The new is not new” text that begins in a blue print on the aged midsole and transitions to blue embroidery on the off-white canvas upper. An ADER error license plate also appears on the left shoe’s heel with unique co-branded designs landing on each shoe’s tongue. Lastly, “The new” and “not new” text arrives on the right and left shoe’s respectively in black.
Release for the ADER error x Converse Chuck 70 begins January 9 via ADER error. Select offline stores will stock it on January 10 and Converse has scheduled a launch on January 12 at a price of $115 USD.
