Drew’s always telling people to paint their own stuff and customize their lives. Converse shoes are a great way to do that.
And, if you want Drew’s art on your shoe, now you can have it.
When Drew was a kid, he’d doodle dragons and waves on his Chuck Taylor All Stars. His friends wanted him to draw on theirs, too.
This collaboration started almost 3 years ago when Converse sponsored our video PAINT PEN TECHNIQUES WITH DREW BROPHY. A section in the video shows how to paint your shoe with water-based paint pens. That led to a brainstorming about putting Drew’s art on production shoes. Drew came up with a couple dozen designs (see the photo above) and they chose a number to move ahead with.
The collection is available at Converse retailers nationwide, including Journey’s, select Nordstrom locations and Converse.com.
Check this out: Converse’s super cool blog features many different artists. TALK interviewed Drew and featured a
video of him painting a Chuck Taylor All Star.
