The Iconic Chuck Taylor Gets Another Sustainable Transformation… our new collab with Converse has just dropped on and we could not be more excited.
We've been working with sneaker powerhouse Converse since 2019 to develop more sustainable, limited edition sneakers to give their customers more opportunities to shop consciously. For our fifth collection, we’ve upcycled one of our favourite vintage fabrics - fleece - to create the CT70 Upcycled Fleece. Saving jackets from landfill, the collection repurposes the functional, durable performance fabric into a limited edition batch of tri-panel Chuck 70s, dropping 24th February on

Rethinking Waste
With conscious consumerism growing, our ongoing work with Converse highlights just how much possibility there is in secondhand clothing, and we hope to continue creating more circular opportunities to make a positive impact on our planet. We’re proud to be able to help brands create accessible and environmentally sound alternatives to fast-fashion, providing sustainable-led collections to the high street customer at such a large scale. 
CT70 Upcycled Fleece
This collection celebrates our favourite outerwear staple, delivering a capsule of functional, durable sportswear in classic colorways - inspired by a renewed reconnection with the outdoors and Converse’s utility heritage.
The series of pre-loved fleece jackets were sourced, sorted, cut and stitched together into classic Chuck 70 uppers for a one-of-a- kind style staple. Available in a tri-panel execution, the sneakers are each made of a custom palette of black, dark blue, red, green and grey fleece.
Since each fleece jacket is unique, no two pair of the Converse Renew CT70 Upcycled Fleece are the same.  The limited edition capsule sneakers feature:
  •         Tri-panel fleece upper created from four unique upcycled fleece jackets
  •         100% recycled polyester laces
  •         100% recycled sockliner
  •         Rubber outsole made with 12% rubber scraps from the manufacturing process for a unique speckled aesthetic
  •         Inner tongue label with Converse Renew branding and upcycle story


The collections is LIVE and available to shop here!
