Your #TheCrew Background Check
We are already familiar with Converse and the legendary Chuck 70 High model. Perhaps you also know the designer Feng Chen Wang, dear community? The artist was born in China and now lives in London. She is one of THE fashion talents from China and describes her own work as 'futuristic, authentic and multidimensional'. Feng Chen Wang mainly designs unisex clothing that is functional, but of course also has some special design aspects. The artist works conceptually and personally and also incorporates her origins into her designs.
A few years ago, during the ongoing collaboration with Converse, Feng Chen Wang requested several pairs of Converse Chuck 70 to complete their presentation of SS19 menswear at New York Fashion Week. With her version of the popular Chucks she caused quite a stir!
Feng Chen Wang x Converse Chuck 70 2-in-1 - the details
In 2018, to be exact, the somewhat different Converse Chucks could be seen for the first time on the catwalk at Fashion Week in New York. But the collection of Feng Chen Wang was in the foreground and the special shoes were only a supplement for the show, not the highlight. Now, 2 years and a few adjustments later we get the Feng Chen Wang x Converse Chuck 70 2-in-1 Pack also as a special sneaker style. What makes the shoes so strong?
The name says it all: two Converse sneakers in one design, combined with some bold elements. The two pairs of the pack have also received 2 colours each. One comes in white/black and the other in beige/orange. The sneakers have a double sole and on the actual upper an additional overlay in the style of an upper - so the 2-in-1 chuck look is perfect. On the backside there is a stripe with the inscription 'Feng Chen Wang'. The designer branding is also immortalised on a pair of laces.
So, let's say: designer vibes, an icon as a silhouette, bold elements that are absolutely trendy and in the truest sense of the word double good Converse style! In addition, the specially designed double sole also offers great comfort. Just a reminder: The Converse x Feng Chen Wang Chuck 70 2-in-1 Pack will be launched on October 20th.
