Upcycled Denim Sneakers

The Converse 'Renew Denim' Chuck 70s Come in Three Washes

— August 13, 2019 — Eco
The Converse 'Renew Denim' Chuck 70s have been unveiled by the brand as a new upcycled fashion footwear option for consumers that seeks to offer them a more sustainable style to add to their wardrobe.

The collection of sneakers are all crafted from denim and come in three wash varieties including light, medium and dark to match style preferences seamlessly. All the denim used in the collection is upcycled to eliminate the need for virgin materials and put a focus on a more eco-friendly aesthetic for consumers to appreciate. This saves textiles from going to the landfill, while also enabling the sneakers to break in like a pair of jeans.

The Converse 'Renew Denim' Chuck 70s sneakers will be available for purchase starting on August 22 from the brand's website as well as select retailers.
