When you can shop the Joshua Vides and Chinatown Market Converse collections
From velcro panels to glow-in-the-dark canvases, you're going to want to get your hands on these new models asap.
Having just debuted a customisable line with Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, Converse is back again with three more creative collections for you to froth over. This time around, the label has teamed up with both LA-based artist Joshua Vides and whimsical fashion label Chinatown Market to create some pretty epic reiterations of the iconic Chuck 70 silhouette.
Both collaborations will join a new UNT1TL3D Converse pack, with all three new designs launching first on 20 July during ComplexCon Chicago (broader releases to follow, see below). The Chinatown Market model is the real showstopper of the new designs, with a canvas upper that changes colour when exposed to UV light. The design arrives in both high and low Chuck Taylor models and features a wild combination of pastel hues.
Joshua Vides' vision meanwhile sees the kicks become totally customisable. The wearer is able to play with the plain black or white uppers of the shoes by using interchangeable Velcro panels in custom Pantone colours to overlay the canvas base. Very cool.

Finally, the Converse UNT1TL3D pack sees the Chuck 70s reimagined with monochrome canvas uppers and the hand-written phrase "NOT A CHUCK." According to Nike, the expression is "an ode to DIY decoration and the notion that a Chuck is defined only by the wearer."
Release dates and where to buy
The three new interpretations of the Chuck 70 will debut first at ComplexCon Chicago on 20 July, with worldwide release dates beginning from 26 July for the Converse x UNT1TL3D pack. The Converse x Chinatown Market will follow on 2 August, while the Converse x Joshua Vides will drop on 16 August. The designs will be available from both the Converse and Foot Locker sites.
