Since the almost unparalleled popularity of OFF-WHITE as a fashion label, his naming as the Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton, as well as his commemoration as part of 'THE TEN,' there is little that Virgil Abloh hasn't got his hands on, and this year he is working with Converse on the release of a pair of translucent designer sneakers. Needless to say, this might be one of the most sought out Chuck silhouettes in the history of the company.

Virgil Abloh and Converse utilize a translucent material for the upper of the Chuck 70s. The iconic OFF-WHITE branding is visible throughout the silhouette. The text on the lateral side of the canvas sneaker reveals Converse's town of origin — Malden. The designer sneakers are completed with words like "Vulcanized," "Right," "Left," and "Shoelaces."
