Converse Classics

The Face took four London creatives to Converse’s Boston HQ to seek inspiration from their archive. Choosing from four classic models: Pro Leather, Chuck Taylor, ERX and One Star, each artist traced the shoe’s place within sport and youth subcultures before incorporating inspiration from decades of boundary-pushing design into their own creative processes across graphic design, photography, music and film.
