Icon to Icon: Shoe Palace Introduces the "Elephant Print" Converse Chuck Taylor

The retailer celebrates its 23rd anniversary.

By

Founded in 1993, sneaker and sportswear retailer Shoe Palace is commemorating its 23rd anniversary with a fitting make-up of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star.

A nod to Michael Jordan and his famous jersey number, the timeless silhouette bears a full elephant print upper. Introduced on the Air Jordan 3 in 1988, the print is being used on a non-Jordan/Nike product for the first time ever here. Readers should note that this shoe is not an official collaboration with Jordan Brand.

Shoe Palace has strong ties to Converse, which was its first major account and has been sold in its locations since day one. The Chuck Taylor All Star has always been a top-five seller for the company and comes in at a price point that all collectors, families and loyal shoppers can afford.

Produced in limited quantities, the elephant print Chuck Taylor All Star will hit Shoe Palace locations and shoepalace.com on Friday, July 1 at 7:00 a.m. PST. Retail will be $70. Attendees of Sneaker Con LA will be able to see the sneaker in person tomorrow.
