Rewind: Converse Sneaker Battle Tour

Converse Sneaker Art Battle TourBack in 2006, Converse sponsored its first Sneaker Battle Tour. Events took place in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia in six venues. Both young and old participated using a wide variety of styles from markers to airbrush. The tour also featured the Hip-Hop flier collection of Curtis Sherrod, which was hot off its run at The Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. There were also featured acts, which included rappers, musicians, dancers and mime artists. Join us as we look back. Check out our video gallery by clicking this link.
