Canadian institution HAVEN has presented its debut collaboration with Converse, working with the footwear label to create a new interpretation of the Chuck Taylor 70. The key feature of the collaborative sneaker is its mix of luxurious and technical materials across the upper, with GORE-TEX adding durability to the construction

The upper itself comes in a premium suede, before being finished with leather on the mudguard, heel and toecap. This is then all covered with a GORE-TEX membrane, which guarantees waterproofing and breathability for the wearer. Other features include nylon taped heel pulls, an OrthoLite insole for extra cushioning and a raised black outsole for durability.

Take a look at the collaborative sneaker in the gallery above. The Haven x Converse Chuck Taylor 70 will release in either “Black” or “Forest Night” via the Haven web store on November 14.

For more footwear, Converse has also linked up with GOLF WANG on a new polka dot collaboration.
