The DRKSTAR features remnants of the previously released TURBODRK Chuck 70 in which Rick Owens gave the Chuck Taylor its first square-toed design with exaggerated proportions.

This collaboration is sure to satisfy Chuck Taylor purists, boasting the classic Chuck Taylor rounded toe. The upper is made of heavy-weight 18oz cotton twill and its tongue proportions and exaggerated in signature Rick Owens fashion. 

The collab also features limited edition accessories: the Converse & Rick Owens DRKSHDW co-branded "dad cap" in Black and Pearl and an Oversized Backpack.

Through the shared vision of innovation and evolution, Converse and Rick Owens set out to re-imagine and re-articulate classic Converse sneakers throughout the rest of the year.

"When I see something ubiquitous, I feel like I want to distort it. I don't know what that's about. Maybe it's some kind of adolescent rage. But that's one of the greatest appeals of the Chuck Taylor All Star.” - Rick Owens
