Tyler, the Creator has returned to Converse for another Golf Wang sneaker. This time around, the artist has reworked the Chuck 70 Low for the first time, adding a luxe touch to the classic footwear with snakeskin leather print, translucent details, and pink and blue color schemes.
The sneaker fits well into Tyler’s ever-evolving style, marking a departure from the rapper’s streetwear era and a welcome introduction to his lavish look. Granted, the Chuck 70 Low could work with Tyler’s old Supreme fits, but its low-rise silhouette, leather makeup, and pastel hues are details better fit with his recent Gucci obsession. Luckily, the shoes shouldn’t cost as much as those from the luxury line — they’ll only look the part.
SSSweet sneakers — Officially named the Golf Wang Chuck 70 Python sneaker, the shoe trades out plenty of its iconic features for Tyler’s own vision. Its traditional canvas upper has been replaced with a leather version, embossed with a snakeskin pattern for an entirely new look and texture. A translucent sole unit does away with the sneaker’s classic white foxing, creating an illusion of a chunkier shoe.
No branding appears on the outside of the Chuck 70 Low, speaking to the “if you know, you know” energy that accompanies many of Tyler’s creations. A co-branded sockliner is the only signature throughout the sneaker, which is set to arrive in soft pink and blue color schemes for easy yet fun styling.
Slithering into stores soon — Tyler first began working with Converse in 2018, and has since released flowery One Stars, an original model called the Gianno, and a pair of Chuck 70 high-tops, albeit intermittently. And while his designs typically aren’t targeted by hypebeasts or resellers — much like Yeezys or Drake’s Nike collaborations — Tyler’s new album, Call Me If You Get Lost, and subsequent tour could certainly fuel more demand for the low-top kicks.
Both the pink and blue versions of the Converse x Golf Wang Chuck 70 Python sneaker will be available globally on March 4 at 10 a.m. ET, with pairs retailing at both Converse and Golf Wang websites. A price for the shoes hasn’t been announced yet, but judging by Tyler’s past releases, the kicks should cost somewhere around $100. You’ll just have to hope you’re fast enough to grab a pair before they're gone.
