Comic books are fun. They’re filled with exciting, death-defying heroes who risk it all to save the innocent.
Chuck Taylor All-Stars are fun. They’re comfy, and they give us all a sense of whimsy and childhood freedom.
And now, those two fun things are combined in the DC Comics line of Converse shoes—and no, they’re not just for the kiddies.
Converse recently released a line of comic-inspired shoes that are dying to make their way to your feet. Batman and Superman make an appearance, as do other favorite comic book characters such as Batwoman and the Riddler. My favorite? The customizable version, which allows you to choose between fun Joker, Riddler, and Batman prints or all-over color—with a few comic book touches here and there.
Check out the collection for yourself over at Converse’s website, and then let us know—which DC Comics pair of Chuck Taylors is your favorite?
Kids Foot Locker brings us Gym Class Hero. Use Crayola Crayons to navigate through the schoolyard and find the missing keys – All while wearing awesome Converse Chuck Taylor shoes!
If there is one thing we have been looking out for, it’s fly apparel that matches our favorite shoe. We’ve been dablling quite a bit, so in the meantime, be sure to check out the Please Potedo clothing line.
So, maybe I am in the wrong here, but why would you utilize a brand to spread the word when there is no direct relation? I just don’t get it. Regardless of the situation, we can all agree that the Chuck Taylor shoe has become more than just a sneaker, but an icon. I think this image says it all.
Converse has put out a little piece of their history on the internet. The Converse Archive includes a collection of shoes they have stored over the years since the companies founding in 1908! They even have the first pair of All Stars.
