Using the Chuck Taylor as a canvass of sorts, Fashion East designers Claire Barrow, Ryan Lo and Ashley Williams were invited by Converse to create and customize the iconic silhouette for the label’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collections. Metal toe caps and paint finishing for Claire Barrow’s design, ribbon laces and pastel colors for Ryan Lo and Ashley Williams who took her inspiration from Elvis Presley showed black Chucks with punchy slogans, all presented at Fashion East’s Autumn/Winter 2013-14 show at Tate Modern on Monday. In a switch from customized looks shown on runways, all the featured styles are already available from Converse.

chuckswinner Converse Chucks Contest: We Have a Winner!

We asked readers last week to send in images of themselves in a pair of Chucks to win a free pair from the Converse Rock ‘n’ Roll series (available at Journeys). We had a very tough time deciding between the final two, but we had to give it to Kimberly, who had the moxie/style to pair pearls and a formal dress with customized Chucks (with a call out to our very own Brooklyn no less)! Congrats Kimberly–you rock!

Converse 100-Year Anniversary X Pharrell, Santogold & Julian Casablancas

12 June 2008, 15.13 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Music, Sneakers | No comments »

Converse is celebrating its 100th year anniversary and natch, they’ve hooked up with some indie-cool artists as a way to promote the event. If you visit the site, you can download "My Drive Thru," a song that went live yesterday and includes contributions from N.E.R.D., Santogold and The Strokes Julian Casablancas. A video and behind-the-scenes imagery isn’t on the site yet, but will be soon.

If you don’t want to download the song, someone already uploaded the music up to YouTube. It’s aiiight, in my opinion. The beat is great, but by the middle it sounds like way to many cooks were meddling in the kitchen.

ShopBop Top Seller: Tie-Dyed Chucks!

12 June 2008, 14.37 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

The typical ShopBop customer–in my mind anyway–brings to mind that quintinsential, post-Sex-and-the-City female, who’s basic uniform is a flirty dress or designer jeans and heels. So I was a little surprised when I checked the site’s best seller’s list and discovered that a pair of tie-dyed Chuck Taylors were riding high:
