Diverging from his notable black-and-white marker-style, LA-based artist Joshua Vides extends his design expertise for his first collection with Converse. By a subtle redraw in the lines of the mid and translucent outsole, Vides crafted a refined yet rebellious Chuck 70 to execute his vision. Crafting custom patches and interchangeable hook and loop panels, the silhouette is then intended to be adapted, styled and recrafted by a wearer – how, when or wherever. Here's the invitation for customization. What will you do with it?
