Shoe Biz x Converse Chuck Taylor “City Pack III”

San Franciscos „Shoe Biz“ tat sich erneut mit Converse zusammen, diesmal um ”Youth Against Poverty” und “Compass Family Services” bei ihrem Kampf gegen Jugendarmut und Obdachlosigkeit zu unterstützen. Die neueste Collaboration von Shoe Biz x Converse ist der Chuck Taylor All Star „City Pack III“. Er wurde nicht nur mit viel Herz kreiert, sondern vereint auch die Werke von Künstlern wie Alán Gonzáles und Kris Mestizo. Der weiße Sneaker wurde mit einer Azteken-Zeichnung verziert, während die zweite Version die Mondzyklen repräsentiert. Beide Varianten unterscheiden sich zwar sehr in ihrem Look, stehen aber beide im Dienste ihrer Stadt und deren Bevölkerung. Der Erlös geht zu 100% an Youth Against Poverty und Compass Family Services. Der Releasetermin ist der 21. Dezember. Wer nicht bis Freitag warten will – schließlich weiß man nie wann die Welt untergeht – der bestellt am besten jetzt gleich bei Numelo.com seinen Chuck Favoriten im Converse Onlineshop.
