Pigalle and Nike have teamed up for a set of Chuck 70s alongside the All-Star Pro BB that was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week earlier this summer.
The three sneakers will be releasing alongside a range of apparel designed by Pigalle’s Stephane Ashpoole to celebrate the opening of a second Pigalle x Nike Basketball court. The court is located in Beijing, China and is constrfuated using Nike Grind, the brand’s recycled material made of old sports shoes.
The Chuck 70 comes in two colorways, one a play on Converse’s iconic natural canvas, the other featuring a gradient scheme. Both are created with a technical fuse film atop the canvas, a design element that gives the shoes an aura of future tech and classic style. This supports Ashpool’s desire to merge cultures, which also comes through in his use of Converse footwear to celebrate “the power of music to move the world forward” (a phrase used on the white Chuck 70’s rand) and promote a holistic view of the progressive value of sport and arts.
