Arriving as the first installment from Converse’s Renew project, these wheat coloured Converse CTAS 70's Ox Renew Shoes have 100% recycled uppers made from post consumer plastic bottles and laces made from the same material. Contrasting white top stitching highlights the models low-cut silhouette whilst the natural coloured tongue provides a base for embroidery reading ‘Life’s Too Short To Waste’. For a signature look and additional durability, the uppers sit upon a thick white outsole which has an additional panel of textured rubber around the front of the toes below a toe cap. At the back of the heel a contrasting panel of recycled polyester runs horizontally downwards towards a black and white Converse All Star rubber stamp. A brown tread design completes the model with the brand’s grip-orientated pattern.
Developed from Converse’s innovation lab, the Renew project looks to push the boundaries of the brand’s signature footwear silhouettes with an array of recycled materials. Each pair from this initial release uses approximately eleven post consumer plastic bottles and results in a polyester material that is indistinguishable from traditional models, both in look and touch. Since 1908 Converse have been pioneering sport orientated footwear and have progressed into being one of the most widely recognised companies within the international fashion industry.
