Converse have recruited the talents of renowned Brooklyn graffiti artist, Futura for it's first collaboration on the All Star II silhouette. Since the Chuck Taylor was reengineered less than 8 months ago, Converse have released a stream of conservative tonal releases, leaving room to highlight the technical enhancements and latest tooling. Futura's spin on the updated classic yields a distinctly urban and street slick look while utilising a darker palette with hits of Camo, flairs of graffiti and even text.

Graffiti artist, Futura

Consisting of both a Low and High top Chuck Taylor II, Futura's iconic geometric motifs are evident on the sidewalls of both, with a winterized Rubber veneer backed Ripstop elevating the shoes for all conditions and seasons. The detailing is significant; the high tops feature a velcro All-Star Patch with removable custom artwork patches, as well as a custom camo print with tonal and contrast graffiti flourishes and motifs. Both models sport reflective laces and a unique second set with Futura's scribbled text that also features prominently on the sidewalls in a subtle tonal texture. Complete with two sets of custom LunarlonĀ® insoles, the special edition pack arrives in strictly limited stock.

The Converse x Futura Collection is priced at $159.95 AUD | Size: Men's US 7-13
