…my shop is an extension of what I was doing in the subway stations,
breaking down the barriers between high and low art.” – Keith Haring
Breaking Barriers is more than just one action. It’s a mindset of progress that transcends time. Without the creativity, grit, and optimism of the past – All Stars wouldn’t have the inspiration, stories and tools to break the barriers of tomorrow.
No other embodies this mindset than the prolific and progressive artist, Keith Haring. Haring’s signature pop art style embodied the belief that people can change the world through creativity. A driving force through Haring’s career was ensuring his work not only advocated for the oppressed by uplifting them, but that it remained accessible to all people.
The same holds true today. For the first time, Haring’s iconic drawings will be translated on classic Converse footwear and apparel styles. Classic like the Chuck 70, Chuck Taylor All Star and Pro Leather as well as the style-forward Run Star Hike, will pay homage to his iconic drawings chalked on the vacant billboards of the New York subway.
