Converse introduces its limited edition second collaboration with American artist Futura.

Reflective graphics characterise the second installation of Converse’s partnership with Brooklyn-based artist Futura, realised in the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Futura “Skyfall” inspired collection.

Designed for both function and fashion, the collection combines Futura’s iconic abstract art style with a weather-ready sneaker collection that maintains the technological construction and comfort benefits of Chuck II.

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.

Available in limited numbers $160 from www.converse.com.au, The Converse Melbourne Central Flagship Store along with Cabinet Noir, Capsule, Up There Store and Supply Store.
