Converse, Slam Jam and Cali Thornhill DeWitt Releasing New Urban Utility Collection

Converse, Slam Jam and Cali Thornhill Dewitt have officially unveiled their latest Urban Utility Collection that includes the Chuck ’70 Hiker (the original Chuck Taylor All Star reconstructed as a GORE-TEX hiker) and Converse Jump Boot (a Jack Purcell-style ode to paratrooper footwear).

The capsule is inspired by a generation that rallies around community and freedom of expression, and for whom functionality means nothing if it’s creatively limiting. Dewitt’s graphics, formed of his notorious all-caps punk-style lettering and translated into English, Farsi, Italian, Korean, French, Russian and Hebrew, aims to deliver a powerful message. It may seem in contrast to the starkness of the Urban Utility aesthetic but serves to balance ideas of freedom of motion and freedom of thought.

The 17-piece capsule collection is built with cross-seasonality in mind and features layering options from short-sleeve Converse Essentials jersey tees and long sleeve thermals and hoodies to the pinnacle men’s GORE-TEX Utility Jacket.

Look for the Converse x Slam Jam x Cali Thornhill Dewitt Urban Utility Collection to release on December 5th at select Converse retailers and Converse.com.
