Brain Dead x Converse Reveal Second Team-Up With Chuck 70 and Bosey MC Silhouettes
A collaboration dominated by cow prints.
Following up on their collaborative One Star shoe, Brain Dead and Converse have teamed up once again to reimagine the Chuck 70 and Bosey MC silhouettes. The kicks first made their debut in a short film directed by musician Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) that highlights young Black creatives including Hello Yello and the Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (ICYOLA).
The Chuck 70 arrives in two iterations, which are both accentuated with distorted and non-consecutive lines on the midsoles. Two cow prints adorn one of the shoes, creating a symmetrical effect with brown shades on the medials and black-and-white on the laterals. Brain Dead and Converse’s logos are placed at each side of the heel, as well as sock liner and insoles. The other design boasts a simpler aesthetic, featuring an all-black upper.
Meanwhile, the Bosey MC is a modern version of the footwear label’s Lakestream wading shoe that debuted in the 1940s. The low-cut sneaker is constructed with a mix of mesh and canvas on top of a bold cow print. Converse’s star branding is stitched to the laterals, while contrasting details are found at the black midsoles and collar lining.
See the collaborative sneakers in the gallery below. Brain Dead x Converse‘s Chuck 70 and Bosey MC are slated to drop on November 19 via each brand’s online store, as well as select retailers including HBX and Dover Street Market Los Angeles and New York.
In case you missed it, Converse recently released cozy “Sherpa” Star Player Ox shoes.
