Converse has more than 100 years of tradition – basically everyone had this shoe at some point in their life, and is characterized by its simple design and iconic star in a circle.. These sneakers, originally for basketball, have become a trendy classic that goes with the times, as confirmed by the new Renew Canvas model.
Protecting the environment is not only a current trend, but also a mindset that affects our daily lives, politics, and also fashion. Both small and large brands have started riding the wave of sustainable fashion and came up with these kinds of collections.
A new player in the sustainably-made-shoes game is the American brand Converse, which decided to make their iconic All Star Chuck models more environmentally friendly by recycling plastic bottles, into polyester uppers and laces were put on the rubber sole.
The collection, containing both high and low Chucks, is complemented by an inscription on the side or tip of the sneaker that says “Life’s too short to waste”, which is a metaphor not only for life itself, but also for waste materials.
