Gorillaz X Converse All Star
The world's favourite virtual rockers Gorillaz celebrate their 10th year together with their very own All Star Chuck Taylors. Featuring a crunchy camo upper and colourful comic illustrations on the lining, the shoe was launched at a Gorillaz Sound System event at London's 100 Club on Thursday December 1st, and is now available in the US. Gorillaz will also chip in with their very own contribution to Converse's 'Three Artists. One Song' project, set for release in 2012. Thanks to Converse UK and Gorillaz for the news.
"To converse: the exchange of thoughts, feelings or ideas. That's what Gorillaz are all about, working and collaborating and exchanging ideas with other artists and global communicators. We've been trading in ideas and conversing with one another for ten whole years. So I couldn't think of a better bunch of people to help celebrate our decade in the business than the good people over at the Converse shoe company. Plus I've been wearing my Chuck Taylor's since forever." - Russel Hobbs
"As Russel says, we're happy to help sell their soles." - Murdoc Niccals
