After teaming up last year for the “Made By You” campaign, Converse and iconic graffiti artist Futura are back at it — this time coming together to introduce a collaborative range highlighted by the Chuck Taylor All Star II. Featuring original artwork by the legendary Brooklyn-based artist, the pack features high- and low-top versions of the updated Chucks — complete with Lunarlon cushioning — and is highlighted by water-resistant full rubber uppers, camo-printed ripstop underlays and reflective laces. Each pair even includes a second set of specially designed footbeds.
Joined by matching weather-ready apparel (including a nod to Futura’s own graffiti roots in the form of a heavyweight woven cotton ski mask), the custom Chucks are due out February 1 at select retailers and converse.com.
