San Francisco’s ShoeBiz has teamed up with Converse on the third and final installment of the Chuck Taylor All Star City Collection, featuring designs by local artists AlÃ¡n GonzÃ¡lez and Kris Mestizo. Part 1 centered around San Francisco landmarks and fixtures, followed by a Halloween motif in part 2. For this go-round, an “End of the World” theme informed with distinct Mayan and Aztec inspirations acted as the guiding principles. Consequently, Kris Mestizo mined his childhood fascination with outer space to create his multi-colored pattern, while AlÃ¡n GonzÃ¡lez looked to the lunar cycle of the city of San Francisco to dress his pristine white canvas Chucks. As with the previous editions, 100% of the proceeds will go to Youth Against Poverty and Compass Family Services, both assisting families in need in the Bay Area. Look for the kicks to launch through ShoeBiz locations and online starting December 21st.
Release Date: December 21st, 2012 (Friday)
