During his Fall 2021 fashion show in Lido, Venice, lauded American fashion designer Rick Owens unveiled a new footwear collaboration alongside Converse. Together the duo has created an all-new silhouette dubbed the Converse TURBODRK Chuck 70.
The Rick Owens DRKSHDW x Converse TURBODRK Chuck 70 boasts a sleek and modern shape that sees the toe box being squared off. The model is constructed from canvas and dressed in a classic Rick Owen’s colorway of black with white for the High and white with black for the Low, while Owen’s design ethos is additionally embedded into the extended tongue emblazoned with “TURBODRK” and “DRKSHDW” branding.
“When I think of Converse, I think of the black and white Chuck Taylors and the punk rock generation. These have always been iconic pillars of my aesthetic,” shared Owens in an official press release. “Wearing Chuck Taylors, you align yourself with a generation that was experimental. There is a confident dynamic to the subculture.”
The Rick Owens DRKSHDW x Converse TURBODRK Chuck 70 is set to release on July 27th on Converse.com and Rickowens.eu. Check out the editorial photos below.
