Tyler, the designer’s new Converse Chuck 70 sneakers, aka the GOLF WANG by You sneakers, just dropped, and we expect them to sell out quick.
Today’s best deals
Tyler, the creator, has had a long and successful relationship with Converse, toppling many classics like the One Star and the Chuck Taylor All Star since his brand GOLF WANG (commonly referred to as GOLF) first teamed up with the giant of the sneaker in 2017. Now Tyler stands up and lets the fans do the work. That’s because Converse and Tyler are launching a unique collaboration that lets fans design their own GOLF WANG Chuck 70.
You can choose between six colors for the canvas and five GOLF WANG logos for the side of the boots. More granular details include the ability to change the color of the racing stripe, rubber sidewall, and pattern on the inner canvas. This means that with thousands of possible style combinations, no two shoes will be the same.
The collaboration will launch on April 28 at 10 a.m. ET. The shoes are $115, which isn’t a bad deal considering they’re totally customizable. You can’t sleep on this one though – the shoes are only available for 24 hours.
Head over to Converse to check out the new GOLF WANG by You collection while you can. Visitors to Converse will have to join a virtual waiting room, and you’ll have a limited window to design and purchase your shoes. Converse’s website reads: “When it’s your turn, you’ll have 10 minutes to personalize your shoe and check out – quantities are limited and may sell out.”

What We Love About GOLF WANG by You Chuck 70 Sneakers
Converse has offered the possibility of customizing its sneakers for years, thanks to its Converse by You program. Its parent brand, Nike, also offers customizable styles like the Blazer, Air Force 1, and Air Max 90. And of course, people have been customizing their Converse ever since the invention of the Sharpie. But a collaboration shoe that’s also customizable is something fairly new.
GOLF WANG by You offers the same basic customization options as Converse by You, including changing the colors of the tongue, heel stripe and sidewall. Unique to this collaboration are the five GOLF and GOLF WANG patches, as well as a polka dot lining inside the shoes. If you’re overwhelmed with choices, Converse offers a variety of designs on the product page.
It’s only fitting that the rapper/designer/skateboarder has had such a fruitful relationship with Converse, a shoe brand that has been reinvented many times over the years. Converse left the basketball court decades ago, but has proven enduringly popular among everyone from punk rockers to weightlifters.
Of course, Converse has also made its mark as a skate shoe, particularly the brand’s suede One Star style, and beyond hip hop, Tyler, The Creator is closely associated with skate culture. While Converse by You isn’t going anywhere and Tyler will likely continue his relationship with Converse, this unique collaboration is still one you shouldn’t miss.
