Art POP-IN@Nordstrom

Custom Chucks @ Our Converse Pop-In Shop

From revolutionizing basketball in the 1920s to igniting punk rock counterculture to becoming the go-to shoe for men, women and kids of all ages, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star has seen it all—until now.

To celebrate this month’s Pop-In @ Nordstrom, which is devoted to all things Converse, we’ve invited local artists from every corner of the USA to put their own unique spin on the ultimate blank canvas: a pristine pair of white high-top Chucks. Keep reading to see 14 hand-painted sneakers—and find out where you can nab these limited-edition kicks while supplies last.

[Please note: Each hand-painted shoe design can only be found at a specific store, as listed below—and each is a limited edition of 30 pairs, so they’re likely to go fast! Available in men’s and women’s sizes; $74.95 each. Not available for purchase online.]
