Following a sneak peek at the collection’s t-shirt themed Chuck 70, Joe Freshgoods and Converse share the lookbook for their collaborative collection of footwear, apparel and accessories.
When looking at Converse’s heritage models, their is a rich history specifically in the ’70s, with the 1976 Pro Leather and its connection with Julius Erving and of course, the Chuck 70. For his project with Converse, Freshgoods highlights Black culture in Chicago in the ’70s with a collection inspired by the soulful energy of Chicago’s disco culture in that era.
Along with the previously-previewed Chuck 70, the collection also includes a Pro Leather dressed in smooth black suede with purple used for the sockliner and glittery sole unit, inspired by the aesthetic of ’70s nightclubs. Additional ’70s inspiration comes in the form of floral patterns embossed across the upper. The shoe also comes with interchangeable J-F-G corduroy patches.
Apparel in the collection includes a hoodie and tie-dye tee with groovy soul-inspired graphics. Another tee reads “Converse Freshgoods” on the front and “Bootleg All-Star” on the back in throwback font. Additionally, track pants come in green with a purple stripe and orange accents. Accessories include a translucent duffel bag with “Converse Freshgoods” branding.
The Joe Freshgoods x Converse capsule collection is slated to launch on December 12th. Check out the ’70s Chicago disco era-inspired “A Shirt To Sleep In” campaign video, featuring guest appearances from Chuck Inglish and Mick Jenkins, as well as the collection’s lookbook images below.
