Legendary graffiti artist Futura has designed sneakers with Nike in the past, but during SXSW 2014 in Austin, TX he hooked up with fans to help them create their own Converse Chuck Taylors. Making a special appearance at the Fader Fort Presented by Converse, the artist took part in an on-site demonstration of the Converse Chuck Hack, a creative project where anyone can take the iconic silhouette and make it their own. While helping participants personalize their pairs, the OG graffiti pioneer took the time to give us the inside scoop on his sneaker history and artistic evolution, while also customizing a unique Chuck Taylor just for us. Check out our exclusive, in-depth interview with Futura, and also see him in action producing our 1-of-1 Nice Kicks speech bubble Chucks in the video spot above.

The darker colorway features a red background with yellow, orange and blue flowers, while the lighter versions see the same colors on a white background. Don’t sleep as the Converse Chuck Taylor “Resofla” Pack is available now in limited quantities at atmos.

Two iconic pioneers join forces to create the graphic The Simpsons x Converse Japan Chuck Taylor High. Fox’s famous animated series is the longest running American sitcom, while the Converse Chuck Taylor is widely considered the first notable sneaker. For this special joint project, Converse Japan takes its classic silhouette and decks it out in an all-over print that features what seems like almost every significant Simpsons character to date. The only interruption to the cast collage is the timeless All Star logo on the ankle, with everything riding on a pure white sole with black detailing. Watch for these Simpsons Chucks in Spring 2014, but stay tuned into Nice Kicks for any future updates.
