Renowned for its footwear flagship in San Francisco’s legendary Haight-Ashbury district, Shoe Biz has partnered with CONVERSE to launch the Chuck Taylor All Star City Collection, featuring designs by local artists AlÃ¡n GonzÃ¡lez and Kris Mestizo. Both styles of the canvas Chuck Taylor All Star Hi are adorned with artwork inspired by the city of San Francisco, with the AlÃ¡n GonzÃ¡lez model giving a nod to Muni, the city’s public transportation system, while Kris Mestizo’s shoe pays tribute to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Even better, Shoe Biz is pledging 100% of the proceeds of the project toward the organizations Youth Against Poverty and Compass Family Services, both assisting local families in need. The first collection launches on September 1st at Shoe Biz stores across San Francisco and online, followed by a second collection in late October.
