after previewing teasers for most of summer 2017, kith and coca-cola combine forces to create a special edition of the converse ‘chuck taylor all star ‘70’. the upper section of the shoe design is crafted from vintage white denim, featuring asymmetrical embroidery that pens coca-cola in the soda giant’s famous red tone. on the medial side, it includes a bottlecap-shaped leather velcro patch that when removed, exposes the concealed converse logo beneath. towards the base, the sneakers feature kith’s branding on the rubber midsoles. furthermore, as a reference to the colored glass used for the original coke bottles, the outsole is covered in a subtle translucent green.

the ‘kith x coca-cola x converse chuck taylor all star ‘70’ shoes are limited to just 1,000 pairs. each model is accompanied by custom packaging, as well as an exclusive red label kith x coca-cola 8oz glass bottle. the sneakers continue the partnership between the shoe brand and the global soda company, following the 2017 summer lookbook which saw a variety of men’s and women’s apparel released, including hoodies, t-shirts, shorts, swim trunks and additional summer accessories like slides, beach towels and caps.
