Converse and famed graffiti artist, Futura, have joined forces for another collaboration featuring the Chuck II. This is a follow-up to 2015's 'Made By You' campaign.

Featuring original artwork by the legendary Brooklyn-based artist, the collection features high- and low-top versions of the updated Chucks — complete with Lunarlon cushioning — and is highlighted by water-resistant full rubber uppers, camo-printed ripstop underlays and two-toned reflective laces. Each pair even includes a second set of specially designed footbeds.

Designed for both function and fashion, the collection combines Futura’s iconic abstract art style with a weather-ready sneaker, apparel and accessories collection that’s built for the next generation of self-expression. This Chuck II Futura x Skyfall has a reflective upper adorned with the artists original artwork, titled "Skyfall" that uses a unique graffiti technique to generate two optical illusions; one that the onlooker is viewing an expanse of tree or mountain tops, and the other that looks as if the sky is falling. They also come with Futura branded box packaging and shoe bag.

Features:

All over reflective body with original Futura ‘ Skyfall’ artwork

Two-toned reflective laces

Varnished midsoles

Futura branded packaging; box and shoe bag

Futura branded outsole
