From the streets of Chicago to the world: Joe Freshgoods tells his story with a vibrant collection, featuring the Chuck 70, and Pro Leather. This isn’t Freshgoods’ first pair of Chucks. He’s been reworking the iconic canvas for years on the streets of Chicago with his own bootleg designs. Now he’s ready to bring that story global.
On this vibrant Chuck 70, Freshgoods goes back to where he got his start: creating graphic tees. Using t-shirt-like jersey material, Joe stitches together his history with a patchwork collage of designs from different eras. Vibrant tie dye, bold lettering and airbrushed graphics converge and showcase the eclectic style mix he’s brought to his work.
Next up is the Pro Leather, carrying on the silhouette’s legacy of soulful style that started in 1976. On this JFG edition, disco vibes and smooth finesse come alive with a luxe combo of suede, velvet and embroidered floral details. Corduroy patches on the heel and a purple glitter outsole complete the funky throwback look.
"I wanted to approach the collection like a reader scrolling through a book about love, Black culture, soul, and art," Joe said in a statement. "Each piece is a history lesson."
The Converse x Joe Freshgoods is releasing December 17th.
