Converse and Warner Bros. Launch Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 DC Comics Batman Collection

To celebrate the iconic DC Comics character, Batman, Converse and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, are launching two new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 DC Comics Batman Collection sneakers for Fall 2016 featuring artwork from the DC archives.

This year, DC Comics is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Frank Miller’s seminal comic series of “The Dark Knight Returns.” Converse has created a premium Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 collection that uses a variety of artwork from the Batman comic archives over the last 77 years. Key features of the sneaker include premium leather with emboss detail, satin lining and iconic archive comics printed on a premium canvas upper. Each style includes an embossed Batman logo on the tongue, a Chuck Taylor patch, a rubber glow-in-the-dark collectible hang tag and an ice outsole with an archive print story underneath, with archive artwork on the sock liner.

The Fall 2016 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 DC Comics Batman Collection will be available for purchase starting October 1, 2016 at specialty retailers, Converse stores and Converse.com. The footwear will retail for a suggested price of $115-125 USD.

Batman Arkham City Shoes by Converse

Converse has launched some more shoes featuring comic book characters, this based on the video game Batman: Arkham City. What’s cooler is you’re able to modify the shoes picking some colors, though the choices aren’t as many as when normally creating shoes from scratch. It also looks like you’re limited to high tops.

Converse Introduces Two More DC Comics Shoes

Converse has released two more shoes in their line of shoes inspired by DC Comics. Two new shoes featuring Superman and Wonder Woman have been released. I generally love the designs of the shoes, my issue is the fact that most are hi tops, not a style I like. Also, how come Wonder Woman is marketed towards women? Some decisions aside, the shoes look great and many are currently on sale.
