Converse and Carhartt are no strangers to each other. They’ve collaborated with each other in the past, and their latest pairing promises to be just as successful as previous endeavours. The new Converse x Carhartt WIP Hinterland Chuck 70s are perfect for the urban stylist or the outdoors enthusiast.
The new shoes feature Carhartt’s “hinterland” print—a pattern that combines mossy oak with tiger camo. This pattern only recently debuted for Carhartt in their SS21 collection. The shoes come in two different colorways. The high tops come in an olive green with black and light blue accents. The low top mixes ice blue, soft blue-green, and black yet relies heavily on white for a brighter look.
Both shoes come with Carhartt tags on the tongue. They also get a high-gloss eggshell midsole or a green midsole. The toe caps come with black foxing, and the heels use the classic hits. Black pinstripes and green accents finish off the looks of these shoes. The high top also comes with a signature Converse badge on the ankle.
Seeing as these shoes bear the Carhartt name, you know that they’ll be rugged and durable. And that holds true thanks to the premium canvas used on the shoes, as well as the OrthoLite insoles. They also align with the WIP philosophy of partnering with brands that appeal to audiences beyond Carhartt’s normal fare of customers.
The WIP line is set to break into the world of hip hop, sport, skate, graffiti, cycling, and more—markets that Converse has had success with in the past. The Chuck 70 Hinterlands are available on the Converse website or on the Carhartt WIP website. The high top is priced at $115, while the ox is going for $110, with both shoes being released on May 27.
