Converse Celebrates 80 years of Batman
Converse x Batman
It’s 2019, and Batman is celebrating 80 years.
To honor this milestone for the caped crusader, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, DC and Converse create a capsule collection that captures the nostalgia of the hero.
With a sharp inspiration from the 1950s, 60s and 70s and encapsulating the pop-art style that was developed and popularized during those eras, Converse x Batman comes to life graphically on the canvas of the classic Chuck Taylor All Star and the Chuck 70, which is a modern ode to Chuck Taylor All Star, celebrating a time when the sneaker had evolved to become the pinnacle of function in sport.
While the collection pays homage to notable and nostalgic creative designs from the DC archive, each silhouette reinterprets the iconic graphics in a manner distinctive to Converse. Further, product details are crafted to enable discovery – such as the custom Bat-Signal license plate and lace set, as well as the commemorative Batman 80th anniversary sock liner on each pair.
