cannanes shoe

The Cannanes Chuck Talyor All-Stars (or Gym Boot) made by Converse

We certainly didn't see this one coming but were surprised to be asked to contribute artwork and blown away (as it seems were Converse) by our own David Nichols wonderful design

The shoes hit the stores just prior to Xmas 2008 and we were most pleased with the results and happy in the knowledge that 10% of net wholesale price of these shoes go to The Global Fund (Geneva, Switzerland) to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

The limited edition shoe was internationally available with reports of purchases in The U.S., Canberra; Fitzroy; Swanston St, Melbourne; Sydney [Australia] as well as Carnaby St London [England]

So far as we know they are now sadly or gladly sold out!
