The Converse Renew range of sneakers fuses sustainable production methods with their classic Chuck Taylors. Their first collection, released in July 2019, comprised of Chuck Taylors made from recycled canvas, denim, and cotton. The latest Converse Renew collection is made from recycled cotton.
The canvas used on the sneaker consists of 80% virgin cotton and 20% recycled cotton, each one dyed in colors inspired by earthy, muted tones. These canvas panels are merged to form a tri-color sneaker that is colorful, yet subtle.
Those who prefer a blank canvas can gun for the monotone egret variation. The sneaker uses the same tri-panel construction as its sibling but is made with an undyed yarn blend. This blend uses 30% egret and white cotton scraps with 30% recycled PET and 40% virgin cotton.
All sneakers from the summer Converse Renew collection will drop on May 15 on Converse.com.
