The kind people at Converse invited us to witness the launch of the new and improved Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, so we flew across the pond for the full Chuck II experience. After the regular sightseeing and food stops we went to the venue where all would take place. At the event we got lead to several rooms and a poodle of mystery and ended in a big room. At this room we each received white overalls, safety glasses and a pair of brand new Chuck II's. With a curious desire to know what was about to happen, we ended in another room where Converse presented the logo with designs by our very own Piet Parra, while a countdown commenced. Several people got spray paint, paint balloons and holy powder, which explains the peculiar outfits, and it went down with a boom1 The whole room of people got a new layer of paint, and at the same time our Chucks got customised in a unique manner.
We want to thank Converse for having us, we had a blast!
The Converse Chuck Taylor II is now available in store an online.
