In a second collaboration, Off White says goodbye to the translucent upper from the May release and takes the more traditional approach using the Chuck 70 model. Devoid of any transparency, this new collection takes a more traditional canvas-ridden upper done up in white with all of Virgil Abloh’s unique embellishments.
Virgil Abloh, the creative and cultural polymath, re-envisions the iconic Chuck Taylor 70 sneaker through the prism of his Off-White fashion label. His interpretation of the classic silhouette is both reverential and irreverent: Abloh preserves traditional genetic coding like vintage canvas and the “license plate”, while adding tabs on the ankle patch, a bright orange sole, overlays with Off-White’s distinctive black-and-white warning stripes, and his trademark subversive labelling on the shoelaces.
With Abloh’s deft contemporary riff on a timeless design, the Off-White Chuck 70 is a visually-striking statement piece that remains as wearable as always.
