Carhartt’s Work in Progress (WIP) streetwear branch has toughened up the iconic Chuck 70 with weatherproof Gore-Tex, hunting-inspired blaze orange, recycled workwear, and now, classic woodland and camouflage print.
The latest meeting of the outfitter and Nike-owned brand sees the basketball-bred high-top in two colorways—olive camo in reference to other Carhartt WIP collections, and the same Hamilton Brown hue featured on Carhartt’s double-knee pant, active jacket and other garments.
Both feature a hefty 12-ounce canvas construction to provide extra durability and a more premium feel than present in standard Chuck 70s. The added cushioning of an OrthoLite insole offers long-haul comfort for the wearer.
Extra attention to detail is seen in the inclusion of subtle vintage license plates and co-branded footbeds. The Hamilton Brown gets a color-matched outsole, while the camouflaged variant’s tread is black.
Priced at $115, the Carhartt WIP x Converse Chuck 70 Hi Icons is available online now.
