It’s up to us to build the world we envision. A collaborative effort between adidas and Denmark’s iconic toy brand LEGO®, these ZX 8000 Lego Shoes are part of the A-ZX series, a global platform spanning a multitude of cultural touch points to showcase the diverse world of sneakers. Bold colors and brick details reminiscent of classic LEGO® building blocks lend playful style to the throwback silhouette. Because you’re never too old to get building.
The African American flag is an artistic evolution of Marcus Garvey’s red, black and green Pan-African flag. Near Jamaica Queens, where Tremaine Emory aka Denim Tears grew up, these colors cover the Liberty Rock monument, symbolizing the civil rights, group identity, and experience of African Americans. For Emory, the flag represents a distinct moment of personal discovery and a belief that Black artists, their points of view, their experience and their creative expression should be celebrated. On this limited-edition Chuck 70, Tremaine Emory translates the African American flag to an American classic.
To execute Emory’s vision and celebrate an America that includes and champions the voices, identities and ambitions of young Black creatives, Converse and Denim Tears have enlisted For Freedoms with Hank Willis Thomas, an artist collective that models and aims to increase civic joy, discourse and direct action – to release a new campaign dubbed “The Future is Yours. Vote.”
