Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - these are the 3Rs for a more sustainable lifestyle that ultimately help to fight climate change and create a green and positive future for us all. More and more brands are rising to the challenge and developing new concepts with reusable and recycled materials. This is also the case with Converse's new Renew Collection, which we would now like to present to you in parts. Because one thing is really hard for us: Reduce, because you can't limit sneaker love!
The Renew Collection
"Turning old into new" is the motto of the new Converse collection. The Chuck Taylor All Star is reissued in a Crater Knit version. The shoe has a specially developed stretch knit that makes it breathable and easy to put on and take off. In addition, at least 35% of the sneaker's total weight is made from recycled material.
Other models in the Renew Collection are the following Chuck Taylor All Star Crater High Top, which combines Nike's Space Hippie concept with the Converse classic. The clear goal is to create a future without waste, so here, for example, rubber scraps are reused for a more CO2 neutral sole.
The Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell also come with an innovative triple lacing system. This is made from 100% recycled Morphlon upper material and also looks great.
The Patchwork Collection
The patchwork designs convince with bold colours and eye-catching structures. The silhouettes swap Upper canvas for cotton and yarn-dyed jacquard. The patterns are high-quality craftsmanship, true to the motto "Expertly crafted. Artfully woven".
