Rapper Vince Staples took to Instagram yesterday to tease his forthcoming collab with Converse.
Black and orange Chuck Taylors in a fish tank feature more than obvious hints to his 2017 album, Big Fish Theory. His caption ‘Don’t tap the glass’ accompanied the two images, which features both a high and low top iteration of the iconic silhouette.
Sole Collector reported last weekend that the collaboration is slated to drop sometime this month.
The collaboration seems to be following a pattern of Converse linking up with young and influential personalities. Their most notable collaborative effort was with rapper Tyler, the Creator and his “Golf le Fleur” brand. Other projects with Dr. Woo and Babylon have created new lanes for Converse to experiment with the Chuck Taylor and their other silhouettes.
Look out later sometime later this month for the Converse x Vince Staples drop and stay locked at Sole Collector for more information and release dates.
