Green Day x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “¡Dos!”

Even for a band who, dare we say it, might be something like a modern-day version of The Clash, a triple-album is a tremendous undertaking.  So rather than seeking to create their own London Calling, punk-pop kings Green Day split up their latest project into three individual releases that provides drummer Tré Cool with a unique opportunity while the whole band garners additional media attention.  And there will be even more awareness of the ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! triumvirate with new Green Day x Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars following in the footsteps of the pair modeled after Billie Joe’s first album cover.  This one takes its look from the LP cover of which bassist Mike Dirnt is the focus (he’s on the inner tongue this time), keeping the pink ‘X’ detailing and spiral design we saw on the first green pair, but opting instead for an earthier, rusty palette.  These drop at Journeys November 15th and mark the start of a contest that runs through January 30th giving fans a chance to win Green Day concert tickets.  Let us know how the rhythm section compares to the lead in this pack so far and stick with Sneaker News for release info on the third pair of Green Day Chucks.

Sneaker News just showed you the Dookie-inspired lowtop Chuck Taylors on a Tuesday that marked the release of the first of three new Green Day albums, which also marks a roughly eighteen year period during which lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong has appeared on stage wearing All Stars more than all other footwear options combined.  Fitting, then, that the Green Day x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star tour rolls on with another date, as today a design derived from album art for ¡Uno! arrives in a boldly patterned green/pink ensemble.  Let us know how the stripes compare to the Missoni collabos we also just previewed, or whether the Gorillaz capsule would be a better comparison, then find the Uno All Stars available straight from Converse.

Green Day x Converse Chuck Taylor “Dookie”

green day x converse chuck taylor dookie Green Day x Converse Chuck Taylor Dookie

By now, we all know that Billie Joe Armstrong isn’t Justin Bieber, but for those of us who’ve been around long enough to remember when his band Green Day burst onto the scene, that was never in question.  A whole new generation of music fans will recognize the lead singer/guitarist thanks to Armstrong’s meltdown this weekend at the iHeart Radio Music Festival, but these elder statesmen of the ’90s alt-rock scene have been famous for almost two decades (and pajama rich for nearly as long, having toured non-stop and sold over 65 million albums worldwide).  Celebrating nearly twenty years since Dookie‘s cartoon cover showed up alongside every longhaired kid’s Discman, the Green Day x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is the latest to apply legendary album art to the timeless canvas silo.  Let us know these compare to earlier rock releases and stick with Sneaker News because although the Dookie XX celebration won’t happen until February, 2014, it’s a safe bet these won’t make it half that long before we’re taken away to paradise.
