Jonathan Anderson is set to release his third and final capsule from his first-ever Converse collection dubbed, “New Classics.”
The drop consists of the Converse Chuck 70 U-Throat Ballet and the Chuck 70 XX Hi. Both are inspired from the vintage ballet slipper, as the shoes have been constructed using natural materials for a technical build. Each model features open cotton knit uppers, leather detailing, and rubber foxing atop a vulcanized sole.
“The vintage ballerina that inspired the shoe was actually more of a sport slipper in mesh,” says Anderson. “I liked the functionality and lightness of that shoe, and we decided to adopt some details to reinterpret the icon.”
Look for the JW Anderson x Converse “New Classics” Collection to release on April 4th at J.W. Anderson retailers as well as at Nike.com.
