CONVERSE UNVEILS NEW FOOTWEAR COLLECTION WITH LEGENDARY BAND BLACK SABBATH

CONVERSE Inc. launched the Spring 2014 Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Black Sabbath sneaker collection featuring five new styles inspired by Black Sabbath, one of the most iconic rock bands of all time. The collaboration features the album artwork of four of Black Sabbath’s most groundbreaking records including Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Never Say Die! and VOL. 4. The designs in the collection also feature special detailing such as stitched Black Sabbath logos and graphic lining. This is the band’s second collaboration with Converse and comes on the triumphant reunion with original vocalist, Ozzy Osbourne.

Black Sabbath is highly credited with creating “heavy metal”. The success of their first two genre-defining albums – Black Sabbath and Paranoid – marked a paradigm shift in the world of rock. It wasn’t until Black Sabbath upended the music scene did the term “heavy metal” enter popular vocabulary to describe the denser, more thunderous offshoot of rock over which they presided. Since debuting in 1969, Black Sabbath has inspired millions to unleash their creative spirit through music. One of the most iconic bands of all time will partner with one of the most iconic sneakers of all time with a truly special All Star sneaker collection.
