Converse Launches New DC Chuck Taylors

I find it really amazing when big brands such as Converse give importance to geek culture. Recently, they launched a new set of Chucks in collaboration with DC and I was there to witness it! Sadly, I wasn’t able to take home a pair but these are perfect for any DC fan out there!

The limited-edition collection features Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Justice League characters illustrated by renowned DC Comics artists Jim Lee, Jock (Mark Simpson), Andy Kubert and Kenneth Rocafort.

This DC Comics collection marks Converse’s eighth collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, which first launched Fall 2010.

Store Front

The very brief and intimate launch was held at the Converse Store in Shangri-La Mall. I don’t frequent that mall very much but I didn’t have such a hard time looking for the store, it’s located near Shoe Salon and the Zalora Pop-Up Store.

Anyway, we were given a short talk and background about the new designs in the series! Each of the designs were created by specific DC comic book artists.

Here are some of the photos! 🙂
