Following a few teaser, the Converse x Vince Staples Collection has been officially unveiled is set to to release this week.
The collection consists of two pairs of Converse Chuck 70 sneakers with a matching pullover hoodie that are inspired from his 2017 album, Big Fish Theory.
Both the Hi and Ox Chuck 70s are built with an aquarium sockliner, Big Fish Theory graphic outsole and “Vince Staples” embroidered on the medial collar. The Chuck 70 Hi boasts a “Big Fish” screen print in Orange that stands out against the sneaker’s Black tongue.
A common design element throughout the collection is the “SEA” graphic, a tribute to Staples’ signature brand and successful Beats 1 podcast, Section Eight Arthouse Broadcast System. The “SEA” of the Chuck 70s is 3D printed onto the heel with the “A” placed to cross with the heel stay and transfer onto the foxing tape. On the Essentials hoodie, the “SEA” graphic is centered on the back, making a bold statement against the 360 Legacy French Terry.
