Converse's Latest Shoes Are Made from Used Plastic Bottles

Innovative and sustainable.

If you’re looking for ways to be more sustainable and protect the environment, Converse has you covered. The brand’s new “Renew Initiative” arrives with a range of Chuck Taylors that are made from used plastic bottles.

Through its Renew program, Converse is aiming to create its iconic streetwear staples in a more innovative and sustainable manner by using post-consumer and post-industrial waste. The first lineup of this strategy features the Chuck Taylor All Star and Chuck 70. Both silhouettes maintain the original canvas feel, but their uppers are crafted using 100-percent recycled polyester that come from used plastic bottles and also come with recycled polyester laces. The shoes are made using a newly developed PET yarn which mimics the original iconic cotton canvas, and comes in a variety of colors which will be available later on this season, including “Moss Green,” “Ozone Blue,” “Wheat,” “Pale Putty,” “Black” and “Jane Stone.”

Converse’s Renew Canvas is set to launch globally on July 5 at the brand’s web store, with prices ranging from $60 USD to $85 USD for adults, and $30 USD to $40 USD for youth sizing.

In case you missed it, here is a list of sustainable sneakers you can buy.
