We've been working with the shoemakers elves at Converse: the styles from our very special shoe collection combine the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette with Gorillaz legendary graphic swagger. You'll be able to get your hands on the goods February 2012.

"To converse: the exchange of thoughts, feelings or ideas. That's what Gorillaz are all about, working and collaborating and exchanging ideas with other artists and global communicators. We've been trading in ideas and conversing with one another for ten whole years. So I couldn't think of a better bunch of people to help celebrate our decade in the business than the good people over at the Converse shoe company. Plus I've been wearing my Chuck Taylor's since forever." - Russel Hobbs

"As Russel says, we're happy to help sell their soles." - Murdoc Niccals

The partnership between Gorillaz and Converse doesn't end with the shoes - Gorillaz and Converse will host a Gorillaz Sound System evening at the legendary 100 Club in London on Thursday, December 1 to celebrate the forthcoming collaboration and Gorillaz' 10 years in showbiz.
