CONVERSE X DUNGEONS & DRAGONS COLLECTION

21 Mar - 2024

Tags from the story: Converse, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS.

In partnership with DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, Converse has crafted a footwear and apparel assortment to commemorate the world’s greatest roleplaying game and its 50th anniversary, the Converse x DUNGEONS & DRAGONS collection.

Leading the experience are two Chuck 70 iterations that leap into captivating realms through a focus on the first edition illustrations, graphics and characters seen within the core rulebooks of D&D – “Players Handbook,” “Dungeon Master’s Guide,” and “Monster Manual.” The collection also includes Chuck Taylor All Star iterations, as well as an assortment of apparel inclusive of tees, a crewneck, shorts and a trucker hat. 

Crafted from the standpoint of adventurers playing the game, the Converse x DUNGEONS & DRAGONS collection celebrates the heroes, villains, and interactions envisioned by the “Dungeon Master” and balances nostalgic style with nuanced detailing.   

The Chuck 70 silhouettes feature molded faceted stars on the Chuck patch — harkening back to D20 (twenty sided) dice — and all adult footwear styles feature a hexagonal, beveled top eyelet to honor one of the most recognizable aspects of playing the game. All footwear styles feature nods to the history of the game on the lining of the tongue and take inspiration from the character sheet on the opposing lining which offers a playful customization opportunity for wearers to personalize player names and stats on the shoe.  

Additionally, fans will be able to customize footwear styles on Converse By You, a digital experience which will enable them to craft their own unique design. Options include selecting the shoe’s canvas color, tongue print liner, toe cap, license plate, and graphic prints inspired by the game.  The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star will be available in both lightweight canvas and tie-dye printed canvas. 

The shoebox has also been transformed into the iconic mimic, a creature introduced in the “Monster Manual” and featured in the hit film, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: Honor Among Thieves. 

The collection will debut at Gary Con XVI, the ultimate DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fan event celebrating the life and works of the game’s co-creator, Gary Gygax, March 21-24. Attendees will not only be able to get a first glimpse of the collection, but one lucky fan will have the chance to win apparel and footwear.

Converse x DUNGEONS & DRAGONS will become available globally beginning April 11, 2024, at Converse.com and select retailers. Converse By You x DUNGEONS & DRAGONS will be available to build on Converse.com in North America and Western Europe.
