Mike Muir of long-running punk outfit Suicidal Tendencies has been a Converse fan since his youth. To commemorate his band’s 30 years of hardcore experimentation, Muir and his bandmates linked with Converse for a comprehensive capsule collection.

Described as “a massively proud moment for the band,” the range offers plenty of gear appropriate for Suicidal Tendencies’s Californian weather: hoodies, tees, shorts, a button-up shirt and duo of remastered Chuck Taylors. The wearables all sport retro graphics influenced by the artwork of Ric Clayton, the artist responsible for initiating ST’s skeleton-heavy imagery back in the ’80s. Along with the variety of graphic items, a pair of low- and high-top Chuck Taylors sport nods to the brand’s iconic branding, including logo-embossed leather patches, heel tabs and poster prints on the canvas uppers.

Look for the collection hit Converse’s website on September 7, the same day that Suicidal Tendencies’s latest record, Still Cyco Punk After All These Years, debuts.

For a more understated collaborative take on the Chuck Taylor, Fear of God recently showcased revised sneakers as part of the Fall/Winter 2018 ESSENTIALS drop.
