On Thursday, June 13, Converse announces a new collaboration with the longest running scripted show in television history, The Simpsons. Marking the show’s first ever footwear collaboration, The Simpsons Chuck Taylor All Star collection will feature custom graphics specially chosen for the collection in styles available for the entire family.
Currently in production on its record-annihilating 25th season, The Simpsons has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world. The show’s characters Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie will be featured on the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star in graphics reflective of the show’s wit and humor.
The Simpsons Chuck Taylor All Star collection features colorful screen printed graphics on styles available for fans of all ages. Available for men, the Homer sneaker includes a blue and black background, accented with Homer exclaiming “D’oh!” on one side of the shoe, and “Woo Hoo!” on the other. Available in children and adult sizes, the Bart sneaker features Bart writing, “I will not waste chalk,” on a black background resembling the notorious Springfield Elementary School chalkboard, accented with a bright yellow inside lining. The Family sneaker showcases all members of The Simpsons household depicted in their iconic likeness the world has grown to love.
The Simpsons Chuck Taylor All Star collection will be available at Journeys (Journeys.com) and Converse retail stores (Converse.com) beginning June 15, 2013 for $37 – $65.
