Since first appearing at New York Fashion Week at the Spring/Summer 2016 show, Feng Chen Wang has quickly become one of the world’s most exciting young designers. The Chinese-born, London-based graduate of the Royal College of Art has gained a reputation for designs that evince a unique conceptual perspective, finding new space within inherited menswear silhouettes.
Already, Feng Chen Wang has developed a fruitful collaborative relationship with Converse. While many collaborative reworkings of the classic Chuck Taylor All-Star 70 leave the iconic shoe relatively unchanged at a structural level, with each collaboration, Feng Chen Wang boldly reinterprets the Chuck Taylor 70, leaving no component of the shoe untouched.
Inspired by Feng’s “My Half” collection, this daring deconstruction and remodeling of the Chuck Taylor 70 creates the illusion of two distinct Chuck Taylor shoes molded into one. This impressive effect is achieved by an extra cut-away canvas overlay upper, double foxing, and a unique, exaggerated outsole geometrically split into quadrants.Never before has the Chuck Taylor All-Star 70 been reimagined with such conceptual vision.
Here in the 'Ivory' colourway, this unique shoe also features an OrthoLite Insole, heel loops for wrap-around lacing, organic canvas construction, and Feng Chen Wang branded laces.
