Virgil Abloh has been a busy man lately. Aside from being recently appointed as the Creative Director for Louis Vuitton, managing his own brand, Off-White, and teaming up with Ikea, he has recently collaborated with Nike on an exclusive design of the legendary Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers. The limited edition sneakers, deemed the “Chuck 70”, are actually a nice take on the classic sneakers. They feature a blue translucent sole, heavy graphic writing on the sides and sole, and a red zip tie on the laces. They will retail for $130.
The sneakers are scheduled to be released on May 12, exclusively on Converse’s website and Abloh’s Off-White website. It isn’t known when they will be released to other retailers. However, it is recommended that you sign-up for notifications on Converse’s website, as they are expected to sell out quickly.
