For the 2012 special release, Converse has teamed up with the famous Gorillaz to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album and the release of the Converse signature, ‘Three Artists. One Song’ – an original track titled ‘Do Ya Thing’ featuring Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000 of OutKast.
From the designs of Gorillaz co-creator, Jamie Hewlett comes four unique design concepts: military inspired camouflage print, taken from the cover of their self-titled debut; a black/brown canvas hi-top in similar military style; and the two others with a collage of images from their album artwork created specifically for this collaboration.
The shoes, which are being released on February 23rd, will also come coupled with the free track available for download at www.facebook.com/converse on the same day and a video releasing on the 29th.
