Following up on the release of Tyler, The Creator’s latest Golf Le Fleur collection, Converse recently released yet another geat joint project with a U.S. rapper. The Long Beach native took a more traditional approach here and went for both a Hi and Ox version of the Chuck 70. Inspired by Staples’s latest LP “Big Fish Theory”, the shoes take on a kind of aquatic theme. While the Ox uses a bright goldfish orange on the upper, the album’s cover graphic shines through the navy-blue Hi’s translucent outsole.
“If you’re not really paying that much attention, you won’t know the difference. But [the Chuck] is something that a lot of people use to be able to assimilate into any room they’re going into — every type of person,” says Staples. To add proof to that claim, he recently linked up with legendary YouTube sneaker reviewer Brad Hall. During the very prosaic – and quite hilarious – review, the two talk about the shoe’s standout features and even dip it into a fish bowl to see how waterproof it is.
You can check out both the video and the shoes as well as the matching apparel below.
