This year DC is celebrating the iconic comic-book character Batman, partnering with Converse and Warner Bros. Consumer Products and launching two new Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. The new kicks will be part of the ’70 DC Comics Batman Collection, and they will launch in Fall 2016 featuring artwork from the DC archives.

This year, DC Comics is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Frank Miller’s seminal comic series of “The Dark Knight Returns.” Converse has created a premium Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 collection that uses a variety of artwork from the Batman comic archives over the last 77 years.

The sneakers include premium leather with emboss detail, satin lining and iconic archive comics printed on a premium canvas upper. Each style includes an embossed Batman logo on the tongue, a Chuck Taylor patch, a rubber glow-in-the-dark collectible hang tag and an ice outsole with an archive print story underneath, with archive artwork on the sock liner.

The Fall 2016 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 DC Comics Batman Collection will be available for purchase starting October 1, 2016 at specialty retailers, Converse stores and Converse.com. The footwear will retail for a suggested price of $115-125 USD.
