Using the Converse Chuck Taylor Ox as the base for its latest collaboration, Chinatown Market imparts its bold DIY ethos onto the footwear icon. Looking like a regular pair of Chucks from the outset, you’d be forgiven for overlooking this pair, but as with all things Chinatown Market, there’s a hidden secret. The all-white pair – complete with the usual high foxing tape, rubber toecap and All Star branding – wears UV-activated ink across its canvas upper, activating and enhancing your personal style with every shift. Morphing into a whimsical pastel palette, the pair will remain permanently coloured after a set period of time, with each finish depending on your own environmental conditions to reflect the personalised ethos at the heart of the streetwear brand’s ethos.
The intensity of the colour change depends on environmental conditions and after approximately 8 hours UV exposure, the inks will no longer change colour. We are unable to accept returns once the product has permanently changed.
