It’s only been a couple of weeks since notorious fitster and Mamacita rapper Travis Scott uploaded a picture of himself wearing the black COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse Chuck 70’s. And, in all honesty, we thought there might be a price escalation on the cards for the sneaker. It never came, but with two new colourways on the cards maybe the time is now for the famous sneaker. We don’t anticipate these to stay on the shelves for long.
COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse
Release date: June 3, 2021
Model: Convesre Chuck 70
It’s only a matter of time at this point, the latest COMME des GARÇONS PLAY x Converse collection is here and fans are likely preparing their wallets as we speak. Available from June 3 the collection includes two new colourways, by way of a blue “Blue Quartz” and gray “Steel Gray”. Both are optioned in the Hi-top (which are our personal favourites) and Ox ‘low’ executions, and feature branding on the back with a signature black heart-and-eye emblem on the heel. The 12-ounce canvas upper is back, a staple of the Chuck 70 that differentiates it from the traditional Chuck Taylor.
We hope this latest collection revives the rather stale silhouette. After all, the Play sneaker has received multiple new colourways and designs over the last ten years but has failed to hit the mark in the last two thanks to recycled schemes. While the latest iteration doesn’t change the formula by any means, we reckon the bright tones and bold colour blocking should give the sneaker a new lease on life. As always, pair them with just about anything and you’ll be ready for a comfortable and stylish day out.
The new CdG PLAY x Converse colourways will release globally at Converse, COMME des GARÇONS, Dover Street Market, and select retailers on June 3. So be on the lookout and be quick to snag what is sure to be a very popular sneaker.
