x Brain Dead CHUCK 70 HI
On a purely superficial level, it might seem like cohesively intertwining the reality warping ethos of Brain Dead with the tried and true style of Converse is a particularly trying hill to climb. Fortunately, there's nothing superfical about Brain Dead or Converse.
A critical aspect of what makes Converse so tried and true is the willingness of their iconic silhouettes to embrace what was once unimaginable. Unless anyone was there as a witness, it's impossible to say with 100% certainty, but we can be reasonably sure that Chuck Taylor wasn't driving around selling All-Stars in the early 1920s with things like punk, grunge, skateboarding, or streetwear in mind.
The genius of Brain Dead lies in making the abstract into reality. For their latest collaboration with Converse, Brain Dead make the abstract idea of Converse as a pliable, aesthetic raw material into physical, expectation subverting form.
The classic Chuck 70 hi-top silhouette opts for a distorted take on the familair form, with an EVA foam cushioned, exaggerated proportion midsole, featuring irregular, broken lines, while a cow print, tri-panel canvas upper calls back to an earlier collaborative design.
