Chaz Borjoquez is, simply put, a pioneering graffiti artist. He cut his teeth in the streets of L.A. beginning in the late 1960's, building on his Mexican-American heritage and integrating it with the harmony of Asian calligraphy, developing a unique style that still continues to influence graffiti and tattoo artists worldwide. While his work spans the streets of Los Angeles and art collections of top national museums, including The Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Borjoquez's signature expressionist style now graces the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi. The sneaker comes in a premium midnight black canvas with a suede heel, accented with a hexagonal "nut-and-bolt" eyelets, vintage weave laces, and a screen-print of the Chaz's signature skull tag, Senor Suerte, on the tongue. The interior is lined with a black-and-white image of the artist working under the cover of night paired with a chalky white midsole. The Converse x Chaz Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers is be available for purchase at the Converse San Francisco store, Footpatrol in London and Juice in Hong Kong and Shanghai for $100. Bojorquez himself will celebrate the launch of his shoe with an appearance at the Converse San Francisco store opening on Friday, June 28.
