A stylized, high fashion take by fashion designer Kim Jones transforms the classic Chuck 70. Known for combining high fashion and streetwear, this collaboration between Jones and Converse is a natural fit. Jones takes the ubiquitous Chuck 70 High Top and gives its construction a modern look with the addition of an exoskeleton and speed lace eyelets.

Play with the look of the original design, while still staying true to it's timeless look by swapping out the standard laces for White Waxed Shoes Laces.
