Converse Chuck Taylor "Jimi Hendrix" Collection

Numerous musicians have been paid tribute with some kicks, collaborated on a small collection or even owned their own sneaker brand,?but few who have been as legendary as Jimi Hendrix. The guitar legend’s music and hiscultural incfluence have been parlayed onto these three Converse Chuck Taylors.

The first shows the album artwork from Hendrix’s Axis: Bold As Love, while the next shows a layered stencil style image of Jimi himself. The final borrows its style from a military dress style jacket Hendrix was often photgraphed in during his career.

    I'm a hug Hendrix fan so I'll mos definitely get one of these. I'm feeling the last too, but not the Axis Bold As one.

    I know for a fact that David Z presented Converse with this idea and they straight up jacked it.

      With the idea for a Hendrix shoe or the idea for a Music Collection? Converse has had this Music Collection going for quite a few seasons now. The Hendrix collection is like the 7th series so far. So if David Z presented them with an idea for a Hendrix shoe after the Music Collection was already in rotation, it's no wonder David Z was given no credit. But if it's the other way around, that's a whole different ball game.

      Let us know what you know!!

    Not feeling the axis: bold as love pair, but I’m really diggin the military jacket inspired jawns. I’ll be looking out for those for sure. The electric lady lands are cool, but I’m not sure if I’ll end up getting those.

    Great idea, Converse, but please give us "Are You Experienced", too!

  11. "Are You Experienced" would be good but they aren't going to make any new ones now. I got the psychedelic ones in this morning :)
