Unveiling the Converse and Futura Collaboration
We are very excited to feature the first ever Converse collaboration with illustrious Brooklyn-based graffiti artist Futura. Futura is the alias of Leonard McGurr, whose passion and artworks have been fuelled by his motivation to transcend the barriers between street, commercial and fine art.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Futura Collection features camo printed rip-stop underlay and Futura’s distinct graphic artwork on the upper, lace and midsole. Created with both fashion and function in mind, these sneakers have a new veneering and weatherized rubber that is ready for all-weather purposes. Each shoe includes a second set of foot-beds with collectible art. Fused with Futura’s abstract art and style, the dark color palette of this collection still comes across as stylish yet still somewhat understated.
