Many on both sides of the cultural divide have lamented how polarized we have become in recent years, with friendships and family ties being strained due to differences in opinion. Converse is showing no signs of building bridges of peace, though, with the newly unveiled Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Looney Tunes Rivalry collection demonstrating that the old battle lines are as thickly drawn as ever.
I’m talking, of course, about rivalries like Daffy Duck vs Bugs Bunny, Sylvester vs Tweety, and Marvin the Martian vs Earth, all three perennial face-offs being the subjects of the three sneakers that make up the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Looney Tunes Rivalry collection. The sneakers reportedly dropped to official Converse retailers yesterday, and they’re not likely to put an end to any of these bitter, generational rivalries any time soon.
Then again, each of the sneakers in the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Looney Tunes Rivalry feature both characters on the sneakers – so maybe reconciliation will one day be possible after all.
