Tyler, the Creator is doubling down on his longstanding relationship with Converse by curating a special Artist Series featuring the Chuck 70 and One Star, available now exclusively through Foot Locker.
The “art” part of the new campaign comes by way of Wyatt Navarro and Øyvind Lauvdahl, the former artist being a friend of Tyler and the latter a lucky creative discovered by the Flower Boy rapper via Instagram. With the Chuck 70, Navarro creates his own standout design that pays tribute to LA street art over a parchment canvas upper. Lauvdahl does his own justice to the One Star with a black-and-white design that reflects his hometown of Norway during the darker winter months. Together, both artists work on the third offering in this set, another Chuck 70 that incorporates the best of both worlds. From the artistic scribes seen throughout in the design process to the eclectic MC tapping two artists, each respectively building a name for themselves within a saturated field, for a major campaign with a globally known sneaker stalwart is just a good look overall — good looking out, Ty!
