If you love the classic, expressive look of Converse‘s Chuck Taylor All Star shoes and you’re a comic book fan have I got exciting news for you! Converse and DC have been partners is superhero footwear for some time now, offering a bunch of designs based on Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Joker, Catwoman, etc., but now they’re offering you the opportunity to design your own!

Using their online Converse Builder you can create your own Chucks based on either Batman, Catwoman, The Joker or The Riddler. You’re able to manipulate the color or print of the canvas, emblems, rubber soles, lining, lacing, and if you’d like, add a personalized heel stripe.

Here’s my design. I, being a huge Joker fan, just had to make this exceptional pair for the Clown Prince of Crime. What d’ya think? Do I have a future in sneaker fashion?



I think they’re pretty snazzy and I’m currently fighting the urge to press “Add to Cart.” A customized pair of Chucks will set you back $75 bucks and at the moment I just don’t have the funds. But believe me, when I get paid I think a pair of these are in my future.

My one gripe is you can’t alter the Bat logo on the top of the tongue. Sure, that looks great on your pair of Batman kicks, but on these it looks out of place. Guess if I do order a pair I can even further customize them by adding a red slash through the logo. It just needs something to Joker-ize it, y’know?

Now it’s time for you to design your own! I’d love to see what you bastards come up with. Share your sweet DC Chucks in the comments below! Also, go check out Betty Fong of Comics Alliance simply purrfect Catwoman Chucks.

I’m totally confused why this commercial, which is for underwear no less, is trying to convince us the Joker hangs out with Batman, Green Lantern and the Flash. And did I mention this is an underwear ad? WTF? (The Mary Sue)

Aren’t these some of the coolest Chuck Taylor’s you’ve ever seen!? You’d probably fork over a good bit o’ cash for them, right? Well…you can’t. This shoe as well as designs for Breaking Bad and Dexter were created by Tauntr. And seriously, Converse, call this dude. (Fashionably Geek)
