Brand: Braindead x Converse

Model: Chuck Taylor and Bosey Boot low

Key Features: Braindead’s take on the Chuck Taylor features a double-stacked sole that reminds strongly of sacai’s work with Nike and Converse’s own work with Feng Chen Wang. The Chuck comes in two colorways — an all-black version and a louder, cow-print version. The Bosey Boot is a 1950s wading boot-inspired design that features Braindead’s characteristically loud patterns and colors.

Release Date: November 19

Price: $140

Buy: Converse and select retailers such as Afew. The black pair will be exclusively available at Dover Street Market

Editor’s Notes: Kyle Ng’s Braindead teams up with Converse for its second collaborative capsule. The first collection covered the classic Chuck ’70 in crazy Braindead-style patterns. This collection, on the other hand, takes things a step further, as Ng and his team have reworked the sole of the Chuck Taylor to feature a double-stacked effect.

The Chuck Taylor arrives in two colorways — one a safer all-black and the other featuring a cow print pattern — while the other shoe is a low top Bosey Boot, inspired by archival wading boots from the ’50s.

In addition to the collection, Braindead has set up Luminous Sound, a fund that aims to ensure future generations have equal access to music education and resources. The Inner City Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (ICYOLA) is the first recipient of the fund.

A special charity shirt is available for pre-order for 48 hours via Brain Dead’s website starting at 10 AM PT Thursday, November 19th, profits will be donated to help ICYOLA provide their students with access to reliable internet, technology for continuing their education, and private lessons.
