Dr. Seuss & Converse Team Up To Release The Lorax Collection
If you’ve got kids, nieces, nephews, or little brothers and sisters, then you’re probably already up on The Lorax. The animated film—which is based on the book of the same name—hit theaters on Friday. And while it hasn’t been getting great reviews, it’s a kiddie movie. So, whether you like it or not, you’re probably going to get dragged to see the thing. But, there’s a silver lining: Now, you can do it in a pair of sneakers made specifically for the occasion.
To mark the release of The Lorax, Dr. Seuss teamed up with Converse to release The Lorax Collection—a small collection of Chuck Taylor All-Stars that feature images of The Lorax on them. Featuring the same canvas uppers that you’ve come to know and love from Converse and colorful images from The Lorax movie, the sneaks are designed for both kids and kids at heart who are excited to see The Lorax.
Unfortunately, we probably won’t be copping these. They’re a little too, er, “hey-I’m-8-years-old-and-I-love-The-Lorax!” for us. So we’re not sure that they deserve a spot next to the Foamposites in our closet. But, we do commend both Dr. Seuss and Converse for coming up with a cool way for those who love The Lorax and Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars to see eye-to-eye with the release of the movie. At some point down the line, these are sure to be collector’s items for both sets. So if you’re into collecting cool, custom kicks, we suggest scooping up a pair. They’re available directly through Converse and they’ll only set you back between $45 and $65.
