Brophy Converse Chuck Collection has Arrived!

drew-brophy-converse-chuck-taylor-designsWe are so excited to announce the new Brophy Converse Chuck Collection!

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.

NORDSTROMS EVENTS FOR KIDS – Kids can help paint their own Chucks!

Drew will personally appear at 3 Southern California Nordstrom locations (kids shoe dept) and will sign Converse shoes purchased in-store during the events.  Kid will be encouraged to join in on the creativity by adding color to their shoes.  It will be fun – Converse has lined up many activities for kids and there will be giveaways of Drew Swag like skateboards, art prints and books.

  1. This makes me so sad! I got a pair of Drew Brophy designed Chucks for my 16th birthday back in February 2011, but they were stolen from me. They were by far my favorite pair and I haven’t seen a pair of Chucks like them since. ):
