Converse and Yoon Ahn, founder of the Japanese fashion brand Ambush, have partnered for the first time to create an exaggerated and utilitarian version of the Chuck 70 HI.

This pair of monochromatic shoes were made of solid rubber. They feature matte details, tonal laces and a reinforced tongue that helps maintain stability and isolation. They also come with a platform midsole that brings a futuristic touch to their appearance.

Curiosities:

- Yoon Ahn took the Extreme Cold Weather model (a military rubber boot developed in the 1950s) from the Converse archives to get inspired for the design of these shoes.
