Set to Drop: Converse x Chinatown Market Chuck Taylor 70 'UV'Published:
February 08, 2019
Shoes that "activate" in direct sunlight, coming in both the High and Ox silhouettes.
The classic Chuck Taylor meets modern renaissance brand Chinatown Market. Founded by Mike Cherman, Chinatown Market serves as a community of passionate young creatives searching for acceptance, inspiration, and sartorial self-expression. By allowing creativity to thrive, Cherman and Chinatown Market have cultivated a brand that continues to grow in the realms of urban fashion and footwear.
The Chinatown Market x Chuck 70 'UV' features a Chuck Taylor as a canvas for success. Cherman’s vision for the shoe employs a light-sensitive, multi-tone asymmetrical canvas upper, which transforms when exposed to UV light. When in direct sunlight, the plain sneaker transforms into a mismatched color scheme that includes hues of orange, blue, and purple. The shoe features a Chinatown Market label on the tongue, as well as a multicolored sole. This sneaker comes in both silhouette iterations, the High and the Ox.
