As the 26th artist to work with Converse's current creative initiative, the 1HUND(RED) Artists' footwear collaboration for PRODUCT (RED), CH favorites Wood Wood designed a stylish monochromatic rendition of the classic Chuck Taylor.

A minimalist take on the All Star Hi-Top, the Danish group used a smooth suede upper, laces and sole — all in a matching powdery grayish purple. The perforated upper reveals Wood Wood's constellation pattern logo and all Converse branding is all-white. Keeping with the PRODUCT (RED) theme, the red top lace holes lend the shoe a dot of color.

Available 1 October 2008 at specialty retailers, such as Colette in Paris, Dover St. Market in London, Undefeated in LA and Oak, Dave's Quality Meat and Nom de Guerre in NYC, 10% of the sales goes to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It's about time your sneaker obsession went to some good, but you'll have to act fast 'cause these are bound to go quick.
