Futura Partners with Converse to Create an All New Chuck II Collection

Converse debuts its second Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II with American artist Futura. Featuring original artwork by the legendary Brooklyn-based artist, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Futura “Skyfall” inspired collection takes the technological construction and comfort benefits of Chuck II even further with the addition of reflective materials. Designed for both function and fashion, the collection combines Futura’s iconic abstract art style with a weather-ready sneaker collection that’s built for the next generation of self-expression.

A pioneer in graffiti art, Futura’s work is synonymous with ingenuity, originality and the NYC downtown art scene of the early ’80s. His work over the last 30 years has transitioned from the street, to the subway, and today into galleries all around the world. This new pack includes artwork that is original to Futura, entitled “Skyfall,” a unique technique that creates two optical illusions: one, that the onlooker is viewing an expanse of tree or mountain tops, and the other, that looks as if the sky is falling. The new collection features all-over reflective body with the original Futura “Skyfall” artwork and Futura branded box packaging and shoe bag. Available in both hi-top and ox, the Chuck II Futura “Skyfall” inspired sneaker also has varnished midsoles and two-toned reflective laces.

First there was weatherized printed rubber; now there are new reflective street-ready graphics. Elevating the collaboration to the next level, Converse debuts its second Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II with American artist Futura. Featuring original artwork by the legendary Brooklyn-based artist, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Futura “Skyfall” inspired collection takes the technological construction and comfort benefits of Chuck II even further with the addition of reflective materials, creating a sneaker that gets you seen. Designed for both function and fashion, the collection combines Futura’s iconic abstract art style with a weather-ready sneaker collection that’s built for the next generation of self-expression.
