Throughout the latter half of 2021, Todd Snyder teamed up with New Balance to create some of the most inspired collections of the year. To kick off 2022, though, the New York designer is rejoining the team at Converse, borrowing their expertise to blend streetwear with “traditional gentleman’s fabrics.”
The apparel is true to the label’s form, never straying too far from simple, universal basics. The crew, which features a varsity-inspired ribbing, offers an alluring velvet that plays off the woodsy camo of the fishtail parka. As for the joggers, there’s no elastic at the hem; instead, a zipper adds an athletic sense reminiscent of other performance staples. This is but only a small fraction of a collection replete with different materials, textures, and styles.
Both the Chuck 70 and Jack Purcell helm the footwear portion, each proffering their own distinct feel. Color-wise, however, the two make use of a similar palette, though the low-top does opt for a patterned finish akin to the aforementioned outerwear. Its lace tips and eyelets add a hunting-influenced element, too, which is then effectively toned down by the natural leathers across the lower half of the shoe. In contrast, the Chuck is dressed in a olive green, whose base is made of a waxed cotton from British Millerain.
Enjoy a brief look at the collection below. The raffle for the Chuck 70 is currently live now at ToddSnyder.com; it’ll end promptly on January 24th at 11:59am ET. The rest of the collection will be available on January 27th at 11am ET.
