Today, CONVERSE Inc. announces the launch of the new Converse All Star Chuck ’70 Down Jacket, a winter-ready sneaker that is a modern crossover between a sneaker and a classic, utilitarian outerwear staple. With the iconic diamond quilted style of a luxury down jacket and a sleek monochromatic upper, the Converse All Star Chuck ’70 Down Jacket is the perfect fit for even the coldest temperatures.
Filled with real Gray Duck Down, the Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 Down Jacket is padded with an 80-20 ratio of down and feathers, the same ratio utilized in the highest quality weatherized jackets. The quilted nylon upper is accented with a colorful red-and-blue grosgrain lace loop running up the tongue, an elegant style element inspired by winter outerwear, and split pin stripe—all details that invoke Converse’s all-American DNA. A micro suede lining ensures maximum warmth and insulation all season long while tonal eyelets, toecap and outsole also help create a cohesive aesthetic that gives the feeling of being zipped up in a warm winter down jacket.
The Converse All Star Chuck ‘70 Down Jacket limited-edition collection celebrates craftsmanship, and authenticity at the highest level. It is offered in Beluga and Gray Morn and will be available for purchase on Friday, Nov. 28 at select Converse retail stores, Converse.com, UNDFTD in Los Angeles, JUICE in Shanghai, and SOTO in Berlin for a suggested retail price of $100 USD
