CLOT has unveiled its latest project with Converse, dubbed the “Ice Cold” pack. Inspired by polar bears, the collaboration features two models, the Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell.
The Chuck 70 Hi features a tri-panel Sherpa execution patchworked together in a variety of off-white shades, with fur lining on the interior for ultimate coziness. Zipper closures on the heel ensure easy foot access, and Polar Bear paw prints are found on the outsole as a final tribute to the endangered animal.
The Converse Jack Purcell Low comes dressed in a cream suede, while Sherpa lining within the upper creates an incredibly comfortable feel, enhanced by a removed heel counter for a “slipper” like approach to the shoe. This pair also utilizes gum bottoms with a black paw print stamped at the toe.
Converse delivers three silhouettes: the One Star Academy OX, the Lucky Star HI, and the Chuck 70 HI, each with a different approach. A brash cheetah print falls across the pony hair upper of the Chuck 70 HI with a black medial All-Star logo to pair with the heel stripe and heel tab on the midsole. A 1969 model called the “Lucky Star” sees a rerelease with the original logo on the medial panel, a black canvas upper, added eyelets, and white contrast stitching. A low-top One Star Academy OX rounds out the offerings in a suede “amber ochre” tone with a black stripes and star branding on a white midsole.
