Dr. Romanelli x Converse (Product) Red Chuck Taylor High

The latest artist to contribute to the humanitarian project Converse (Product) Red is none other than apparel customizer Dr. Romanelli. Famous for his customized jackets and the use of vintage materials, he has created a band-aid Chuck Taylor which we think have a deeper meaning of ‘band-aiding’ or fixing the problem with AIDS. No word yet on a release date but look for more pictures of this meaningful sneaker in the future.
