Both pairs arrive in distinct tonal black and white options alongside intricate embroidery inspired by Mary Howitt’s classic poem, The Spider and the Fly. The key Dr. Woo says, is to wear them “til they are destroyed. The story gets personal as the spider embroidery gets rough, ripped and fuzzy. Then, it becomes a story of you, and the shoe,” explained the artist to Converse.
Get a closer look at both renditions above and expect an official release at Converse’s official website and select retailers starting January 20. Each shoe will set you back approximately $180 USD. Furthermore, bespoke versions signed, numbered, and tattooed by Dr. Woo are available for purchase at an exclusive Maxfield LA event with a price tag of $1,095 USD each.
