Gorillaz for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Collection
Converse has unveiled four distinct design concepts for the newest footwear collaboration with world-famous virtual band, Gorillaz. Launching February 23, 2012, the styles from the Spring 2012 collection combine the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette with the band’s legendary graphic images. The military-inspired camouflage print, taken from the cover of their self-titled debut, is the signature design for the collection. The military theme is also featured on a black/brown canvas hi-top shoe featuring an image of their famous Pazuzu character as well as on the Chuck Taylor All Star hi-top and oxford shoe with a black and white version of the print on the outsole, and the Gorillaz camouflage print in the lining. All shoes from the collection contain a Gorillaz heel tab and hangtag with additional details on the product. In continuation with Converse’s dedication to the global music community, the design partnership with Gorillaz will include Converse’s latest installation of their signature “Three Artists. One Song” collaboration featuring Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000. The Gorillaz for Converse collection will retail for $60 USD and be available online.
