Following up on the Dr. Romanelli x Medicom Toy Beetle Bailey & Popeye Bearbricks, the designer from Los Angeles has once again joined forces with Converse to add some sneakers to the Beetle Bailey Vs Popeye Collection, which will launch exclusively at Bloomingdales on October 15th, 2011.

Together with Converse Dr. Romanelli presents two Chuck Taylor All Star Hi sneakers. One of them features a military green canvas upper, black leather details, gum sole with rubber toe cap and numerous embroidery and a Beetle Bailey comic strip print lining. The sneaker came out really nice, perfectly telling the story, while also being easy to wear. The second one comes with a black wool upper, anker embroidery detail, red line detail on the ankle support and also a Popeye comic strip print lining. All in all really clean.

Romanelli once again presents a very round and well executed project. We are hearing rumors that some more highlights (hint.. Bamford) will drop along with the line, that we can hopefully report about soon.

After the jump we take a further look at the two sneakers and show you some of the archive videos featuring Mort Walker.
