The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, formerly just the All Star has been in constant production since 1917. In an era when sneaker design is changed yearly, the concept of a design (with small changes) lasting for 96 years is unheard of (most brands haven’t lasted 96 years). This iconic shoes which gone from the world’s most prevalent basketball sneaker to a lifestyle staple, remains beloved both for its history and its simplicity.
The last makeover of the All Star comes from artist Nate Lowman. He transformed this regular pair of sneakers in a piece of art. It took about 10 hours to create each pair finished with a stamp of Just One Eye’s logo and Lowman’s signature. Lowman used his original work for the collection, deconstructing two of his canvases that depict William De Kooning’s iconic 1954 portrait of Marilyn Monroe. The deconstructed canvas was used to create 21 completely unique pairs of Chuck Taylor high-tops.
Limited to only 21 pairs, this unique sneakers are available now online, priced at $25,000. Or, you can buy some 450 pairs of regular Chucks?!
