Converse x Rick Owens Drkshdw Turbodrk Chuck 70 Laceless ‘Dust.’
Signature elongated tongues appear on Owens’ latest creation for Converse, while the sole unit also receives an exaggerated, avant-garde update. Drkshdw branding appears throughout the shoes, namely the license plate at the heel.
Introduced in 2021, the Turbodrk Chuck 70 follows Owens’ practice of confident contortion of cultural signifiers, which is reflected in his decision to bend and reshape Converse’s iconic canvas shoe. Now, Converse x Drkshdw introduces the footwear brand’s “Max Grind” process to the Turbodrk outsole for the first time. This process incorporates up to 40% reclaimed and reused rubber scraps from Converse’s footwear manufacturing process back into the outsole. The outsole is complemented by the signature rubber square top cap and heel with a distinctive speckled aesthetic.
