After last year’s multi-pattern Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70 collaboration, Brain Dead and Converse have returned with a print-heavy take on the One Star silhouette. The new colorway takes inspiration from patterns in the Converse archive, with leopard and zebra prints sitting alongside polka dots across the sneaker’s upper.

The asymmetric sneaker’s design is then finished with a number of different slogans on its foxing tape (“To see and be seen as far as the eye can see. Who Controls the Control Men. The same elsewhere.”), plus Brain Dead and Converse branding on each footbed. The Brain Dead x Converse One Star is set to release via the Converse web store and select retailers on February 7, and will be priced at $120 USD.
