CONVERSE x JOSHUA VIDES

An ode to artistic craftsmanship from master creator Joshua Vides. Introducing the second collaboration of Converse with the visual artist brings his distinct, detail-driven aesthetic to the Chuck 70, Weapon CX, Pro Leather and new clothing.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Joshua Vides got his start in the streetwear industry before branching out to pursue his own creative projects full time.

Joshua Vides aims to create things that people have never seen before, and yet his style is instantly recognizable.

He deploys a stark black and white color palette using imperfect marker strokes, adding comic-like veneer to real objects and spaces and challenging perception of dimension and reality.

A true master of his craft, the power of Joshua Vides’ work is in the details; the unique and thoughtful touches that transform a simple piece into an experience of endless discovery.

The second collaboration with Joshua Vides is a wearable ode to artistic craftsmanship, designed to inspire fellow creators. On the Pro Leather, his signature color palette and intricate detailing tells a story of process and craft, highlighting the tools and techniques of an artist at work. Imperfect marker strokes retrace the iconic lines of the soulful court classic and give it new dimension. From measuring tape laces to a duct tape-style leather toe treatment, the power of the design is in the details—unique and thoughtful touches that transform the sneaker into a visual experience of endless discovery.

On the Weapon CX, his signature color palette and intricate detailing tells a story of process and craft, highlighting the tools and techniques of an artist at work. It features a canvas upper with a frayed finish, perforated transparent TPU on the toe and quarter panels and innovative CX cushioning. The power of the design is in the details—unique and thoughtful touches that transform the sneaker into a visual experience of endless discovery.

On the Chuck 70, his signature color palette and intricate detailing tells a story of process and craft, highlighting the tools and techniques of an artist at work. The design features a layered upper with a 3D printed polka dotted canvas beneath a zip-up shroud made from Tyvek® material, a nod to the suit Joshua wears when painting. From measuring tape laces to removable ankle patches, the power is in the details—unique and thoughtful touches that transform the sneaker into a visual experience of endless discovery.
