Most sneakerheads go to great lengths to keep their kicks from getting scuffed. (Remember that video of the guy taking off his shoe while proposing so it wouldn't crease?)
Why? These kicks are made in "double layer canvas," which reveal a second color under the first over time with wear.
"The beauty in the breakdown of the shoe is what I wanted to highlight," Woo said in a statement.
"The way you receive your shoe is not the end game. It is fully pliable and moldable to however the wearer wants to wear it."
"Putting your shoe through that is the reward — seeing how it gets beat up."
His new Chuck 70s, his second collaboration with Converse, are an ode to vintage sneakers and the wear and tear that make them special.
There are two unique colorways to pick from—black with "sunset gold" underneath and white with "green absinthe."
Also in the mix are two Chuck 70s in printed patterns (sorry, no changing colors on those) as well as a GORE-TEX fabric Coaches jacket.
The entire Converse x Dr. Woo collection hits shelves on September 6.
