A new line of Chuck Taylors made from upcycled jeans is just the beginning of Converse’s efforts to rethink its most famous design around sustainability.

But Renew Denim is only the first step in an roadmap for Converse to produce millions of Chuck Taylors and Chuck 70s out of upcycled textiles of all sorts.
