Converse Gears Up for the Cold with a Pair of Winterized Suede Chuck 70s

When accounting for their origin story, Converse’s Chuck 70 is one of the more emblematic silhouettes in all sneakers, and there are no two ways around that. Well, the Nike subsidiary is deciding to turn them on their heads a bit, with an entirely new spin on the shoe that is built to withstand the coldest terrain. The new pair is called the Climate Escapism and is available in a couplet of colorways.

Raising the height on their standard hi-tops by a fair amount, it’s fair to say that this is the brand’s rendition of a pair of hiking boots. While the Climate Escapism kicks are surely a pair that catches the eye, with its polyester details and all, their construction offers just as much to behold. Thanks to their sturdy rope laces, a modified outsole, and reinforced padding throughout the shoe, they guarantee comfort and stability, above all else. No matter what climate you live in, these new winterized sneakers showcase an entirely new take on their statement pair and just go to show how versatile they are, specifically when adding a couple of inches and altering their entire makeup.

Unorthodox may be an understatement, but Converse is a staple brand that has more than enough credibility to think outside the box as much as they please, especially if something this interesting is the outcome. You can order your pair of the Chuck 70 Hi Climate Escapism in either Crockery or Sage. For the sake of clarity, Crockery is more on the beige side. Pricing is set at $136 a pair.

Purchase: $136
