Converse, Joshua Vides and Chinatown Market Explore the Bounds of Customization

July 16, 2019 - The Converse Chuck 70, built from the 1970 articulation the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, has solidified a reputation as a designer favorite. For Los Angeles-based artist Joshua Vides and Chinatown Market’s Michael Cherman, the shoe is also an invitation for hands-on experiences. 

Cherman’s vision for the shoe employs a light-sensitive, multi-tone asymmetrical canvas upper, which transforms when exposed to UV light. Vides allows for a more intentional transformation: His Chuck 70 incorporates interchangeable Velcro panels in custom Pantone colors.

Converse adds to this mix by offering a third sneaker with its own evocative release. The UNT1TL3D pack carries an exaggerated midsole and an upper features hand-drawn iterations of the phrase “NOT A CHUCK” — an ode to DIY decoration and the notion that a Chuck is defined only by the wearer. 

All three shoes launch during ComplexCon Chicago, July 20 and 21, at the Converse booth. Broader releases for each of the Chuck 70s follow: July 26 for the Converse x UNT1TL3D; August 2 for the Converse x Chinatown Market;  August 16 for the Converse x Joshua Vides.
