Using the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star due to the model’s history, it is the perfect canvas to highlight the current American and world socio-political climate. Featuring custom pins touching on subjects ranging from Black Lives Matter, LBGTQ rights, and climate change, the shoe is designed with the present top of mind and adds to the silhouette’s cultural presence in arts and activism.
The All-Star debuted on an episode of Complex’s Sneaker Shopping episode, featuring VP Elect Kamala Harris’ visit to Social Status Charlotte. Building on that moment, in support of the HBCU community and in partnership with Complex, Social Status will be donating all pairs of this exclusive collaboration to students of Solefood Digestible Sneaker Culture, a course taught by Dr. Jemayne L. King at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, NC.
