Converse has been partnering with recognised houses in recent months for some iconic collaborations. After a successful drop of the Converse X Moncler FRGMT collection, the brand has now partnered with Warner Bros. Its biggest collab of the year, the Converse X Space Jam collection is finally official.
The collection is inspired by the latest crossover film, Space Jam: A New Legacy. The Tune Squad is also back with the likes of Bugs, Lola, Tweety and Daffy. It stars LeBron James, Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, Zendaya and many more.
For the collection, pieces include sneakers, apparel and accessories. A few of these items feature bold graphics from the film, which includes customisable designs.
The sneaker collection has been derived from Converse’s archives. It includes three silhouettes – the Chuck 70, Pro Leather and Chuck Taylor All Star. The collection brings the magic of Space Jam for a new generation, 25 years after the original aired.
Converse X Space Jam Chuck 70
One of the most iconic sneakers in history receives a fresh paint job, inspired by Space Jam: A New Legacy. The limited-edition sneaker features premium materials, while loaded with looney details throughout.
These details include iconic coloured rings, Tune Squad graphics and a special Space Jam: A New Legacy Converse logo. The high-top sneaker has a canvas upper, along with its vintage licence plate.
To round off the design, the Chuck 70 features a “Looney Tune LeBron” print liner. Additionally, it includes the player’s signature.
Chuck Taylor All Star
Another of Converse’s classics, the Chuck Taylor All Star features a classic canvas upper. This is laden with a digitally-inspired, circuit print. The Tune Squad is included in a reality-bending, animated glory. This includes Bugs, Lola, Daffy, Marvin the Martian and Taz.
It also includes the special Converse x Space Jam logo on the tongue. Furthermore, it has the classic Chuck Taylor ankle patch and orthoLite insole for comfort.
