Converse has a couple of exclusive sneaker collaborations set to release at ComplexCon Chicago this weekend, including collabs with Chinatown Market and LA-based artist Joshua Vides. Each of the special edition sneakers take shape in the form of the Chuck 70.

Converse and Chinatown Market conceptualized a light-sensitive, multi-tone asymmetrical canvas upper, which transforms from a muted palette to a bold saturated palette using UV activated ink, when exposed to UV light – as shown below.

Utilizing Vides’ signature linework on the mid- and outsole, he redrew the lines of Chuck 70, crafting a black and white base layer with subtle linework. Then, with a desire to ensure the wearer can adapt the shoe to their individual style, concepted interchangeable Velcro hook and loop panels in custom Pantone colorways that overlay the canvas base.
