Converse continues to contribute to the Nike Move to Zero initiative, reworking its famous footwear out of recycled materials. This week, the Chuck Taylor goes full-knit for its latest recycled rendition, available now.
Nike’s Move to Zero initiative is slowly taking over every aspect of the brand’s product, right down to the different brands operating under the banner of Nike, Inc. Converse, for example, has been working with the Swoosh to deliver more sustainable versions of its footwear as well, kicking off the project with the release of the Chuck Taylor All-Star Crater last year. Now, as Nike’s sustainability initiative continues to grow, a new version of the Chuck Taylor Crater has emerged, fitting the silhouette with new knit textile uppers. While the older version also featured knit sections and recycled yarns, they were utilized as individual panels, connected to each other via overlays and stitching. This version appears to be more of a single piece, knit from recycled materials to create a bootie-like upper that conforms to your foot. The All-Star Crater Knit made its debut this week in two colorways, one flat grey version and a second in white with hints of volt green.
