Converse Japan Introduces Chuck Taylor Dyed Using Food Scraps

Arriving in “Cabbage” and “Juniper” colorways.

Converse Japan has teamed up with Food Textile, an initiative that aims to recycle food waste via the fashion industry, on sneakers dyed using food scraps. The resulting products are two iterations of the Chuck Taylor All Star Hi, one in cool grey “Cabbage” and the other in fuchsia “Juniper.”

The duo’s sustainable dying method was developed as part of Converse Japan’s eco-friendly “eclab” series. The shoes are also constructed with recycled rubber outsoles and Eco-Ortholite insoles made of castor oil-based polyurethane.

The Food Textile x Converse Japan Chuck Taylor All Star Hi retails for ¥ 9,000 JPY (approximately $84 USD) and is expected to release in August at the Converse Japan website.
