Converse joins with Dinosaur Jr. to create a set of 90’s inspired cult classic shoes in two unisex skateboarding silhouettes. The Chuck Taylor All Star Pro Hi features the band’s identifiable mascot, “peace sign guy” amid yellow florals. The One Star Pro is outfitted with the iconic Dinosaur Jr. Purple in its characteristic star inset on the shoe’s frame and premium black nubuck exterior.
The union focuses on the peak of the skateboarding era where the music and overall culture intersect. Reflecting on the eclectic but classic aesthetic of J Mascis, Converse uses design to depict the singer’s spirit through the all over daisy print on the CTAS Pro and subdued One Star Pro, which features the “peace sign guy” tucked away on the shoe’s tongue.
Both silhouettes are finished with Cons Traction Rubber for grip and board feel while gusseted tongues offer comfort.
The special edition Converse x Dinosaur Jr. will launch on July 1st at Converse retails stores, third party retailers, and on Converse.com.
