Carhartt WIP, Converse collaborate for sneakers

Oct 5, 2018

Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP), a US-headquartered apparel company, has reinterpreted the Converse One Star, fusing utilitarian military inspiration with contemporary design.


Inspired by "military bags and detailing adapted for the streets", the collection blends workwear and streetwear, according to a press release.

"Since very early on we’ve incorporated military fabrics and details into our clothes, but with the One Star we wanted to do this with a clean, modern approach," said Wilfried Atzert, global brand director of Carhartt WIP. 

"The sleek contrast outsole and robust Cordura fabric are how we’ve translated this element of Carhartt WIP’s DNA into a contemporary, utilitarian sneaker."

The One Star silhouettes feature a Cordura fabric upper with accompanying hangtag and a military-inspired bandolier heel stay webbing with D-ring hardware detail.

Furthermore, the tongue logo patch is made from the coated tarp-type material, much like the trailer covers of large trucks.

Available in black, olive and white, the sneakers are available in-store at Carhartt and Converse and online.
