Part of the whole Converse Renew program is the use of recycled denim for their kicks. The Chuck 70 Tri-Denim Panel has different shades of recycled denim which gives it a recycled and raw look. Denim is a sturdy material and it is ideal to be used in what I call a "beat them up" shoe like converse. I'm pretty sure a lot of people who have worn a Converse had beaten them up their pair badly because it is pretty reliable. Yeah sure, cushion comfort might not be its top feature but you can be sure that durability is a top priority. But don't worry, these are Chuck 70s, which means they are more comfortable than your standard Chucks because of the more beefed up cushioning inside. For aesthetics, since these are made from recycled denim which has 3 different panel, you can bet on it that there will be no 2 pairs alike due to the whole concept of recycled or "renew" which how they market these. They dropped last October 3 you might as well check out their website if you are planning to cop a pair.
