Every good Cali kid has owned at least one pair of chucks, my favs were purple with Power Puff Girl laces. Well, now thanx to a collaboration between Converse and the uber chic, Givenchy I never have to go back to Bubbles and Blossom adorned footwear. Richardo Tisci, Givenchy’s head designer, gave into his penchant for a gothic aesthetic with patent leather, leopard-printed, cross adorned, and generally tasty sneakers. The only down side is that they are only offered in Japan! I know, I know, but hopefully they will be offered to the rest of us soon.
