DQM x Converse Chuck Taylor Red Product - "What Would You Do For A Cure?"

Almost 40 million people worldwide have the misfortune of living with AIDS. (Product) Red joined the fight against AIDS by initiating the private sector in the promotion of awareness of AIDS. A significant amount of the sale of Red products will go towards The Global Fund to finance various AIDS programs in Africa. Dave Ortiz (of DQM) used many symbols on this Chuck Taylor’s that depicted the fight against AIDS in Africa. On the outer heel an ankh is used to symbolize life, on the inner heel an Egyptian Chnoubis serpent symbol represents protection from disease and poison, and a back heel symbol represents blood. Ortiz has always been a fan of Chuck Taylor’s however he would always give his Chuck Taylor High’s the surgical treatment and trim them down. The DQM x Chuck Taylor could be considered the first Chuck Taylor mid as it possess 6 lace holes rather then the regular 5 and 8 holes seen on the low and high respectively. Help the fight against AIDS in style!
