A new collection from the Keith Haring Studio and Converse has been revealed, marking the first time Haring’s drawings will be translated onto the brand’s classic line of footwear and apparel. The deal was brokered by licensing agent Artestar.

Classics like the Chuck 70, Chuck Taylor All Star and Pro Leather, as well as the Run Star Hike serve as a new canvas for his works chalked on the vacant billboards of the New York subway.

Across the collection, Haring’s signature style is depicted through black-and-white graphics featuring pops of red. For a more colorful take, a Chuck 70 is also customizable via Converse By You, Converse’s product customization platform, with four distinct canvas prints to choose from, along with customizable elements – the ankle patch, midsole, laces, foxing, pinstripes, heelstay and lining.

Converse x Keith Haring is available globally now on Converse.com and select retailers.
