Converse and pgLang have teamed up once again, this time presenting an exciting twist to their latest footwear venture. The partnership introduces pgLang’s new iteration for the Converse Chuck 70, a sneaker steeped in minimalism yet rich in storytelling.
The American rapper Kendrick Lamar laid the groundwork for pgLang in 2020 with his veteran collaborator Dave Free. Together, they’ve built a multidisciplinary behemoth that includes a record label, production company, publishing arm and more. At its core, pgLang thrives on storytelling, striving to forge connections between individuals through shared experiences and, in this case, introducing an element of chance.
For its second act, the collaboration reintroduces the Chuck 70, a Converse classic reimagined in a black palette with two distinct variations awaiting the lucky buyer. A close look at these sneakers reveals subtle yet intriguing differences between the pairs. One features Converse’s navy pinstripe on the left shoe and a touch of Irish Cream on the right, while its counterpart features Irish Cream on the left and a splash of Converse Red on the right.

More than just a pair of sneakers, the pgLang for Converse Chuck 70 is a testament to thoughtful design. It features hiking-style eyelets along the upper and an innovative asymmetrical rubber coating that adds layers of intrigue and sophistication. Inside, the insole and outsole carry messages and graphics that resonate with pgLang’s commitment to transcending language, creating a sneaker that speaks volumes without uttering a single word. The canvas upper proudly displays “pgLang for” just above the Chuck ankle patch, seamlessly blending Converse’s timeless style with pgLang’s forward-thinking creative ethos.
Beginning November 2, sneakerheads and fans of both brands can immerse themselves in this unique experience, with the Converse Chuck 70 by pgLang available on both converse.com and pg-lang.com.
