Feng Chen Wang’s highly-anticipated exploratory 2-in-1 Chuck 70, which debuted during NYFW in 2018, is finally set to release in two colorways.
More than two years ago, at the start of her ongoing collaboration with Converse, Feng Chen Wang, like many designers before, requested the Converse Chuck 70 to complete her SS19 Menswear presentation at New York Fashion Week.
Wang captured the global attention of creative culture when she presented her vision of the canvas sneaker: a carefully deconstructed and delicately reassembled Chuck 70 concept shoe, complete with hand-painted details. Wang continued to tinker her concept through shape, style and color and just a few weeks later, debuted fresh iterations during her show in Shanghai.
Shortly after the show, Converse and Wang began work to figure out how to formalize the bold concept and bring it to wider audiences.
