DC, Converse give Batman and Bane the All Star treatment
Just in time for Comic-Con -- and in advance of the movie's July 20 release -- Converse is rolling out its "Dark Knight Rises" Chuck Taylor All Star collection, which will be sold exclusively through Journeys boutiques and website.
The latest collaboration between Converse and DC features a Batman shoe printed with an image of the Caped Crusader from the movie and a sneaker that pays homage to the villain Bane, with his image screen-printed on the canvas upper, and, as befits a baddie, a predominantly black shoe with a red racing stripe accent.
Both versions feature QR codes hidden in their woven labels that can be scanned to access special comic-book downloads and have a suggested retail price of $59.99.
Both shoes are supposed to be available as of today, though, as of this writing we could only locate the Bane hi-top at Journeys website.
