Converse x Keith Haring Collection

WORDS Celeste Jacobs

From New York to the world – iconic Keith Haring designs are now available in an exclusive capsule collection by Converse.

The notion of breaking barriers is synonymous with Keith Haring’s work – whose signature style serves as a physical representation of his belief that creativity holds the power to change the world. From the get-go, where his work covered New York subway billboards, Keith’s career was fueled by the desire to stand up for the underdogs and uplift the oppressed – all the while ensuring that art remained accessible to everybody.

This attitude is something that Converse embodies too – All Stars have been laced to the feet of many change makers whose actions have rippled across society in a variety of forms. From artists and activists, and everyone else in between – the iconic silhouette holds stories on its soles.

For the first time, Keith’s drawings appear on classic Converse sneakers and apparel – these include the likes of the Chuck 70, Chuck Taylor All Star and Pro Leather, as well as the Run Star Hike. Prized pieces for street art aficionados and Converse lovers alike.

Converse x Keith Haring is available on the Converse website, as well as Superbalist, Shelflife, Lemkus, Archive, Inline, Crosstrainer and Baseline.
