Joker 4.0 Converse All Stars

Sweatshop Clothing recently unveiled the Joker 4.0 Converse All Stars through the MySpace page linked here. The designer was getting tired of seeing the third version floating around the Internet and wanted to go bigger and badder with these All Stars. The result is a beautifully designed sneaker with the frightening face of the Joker placed on the side.

The tongues feature Sweatshop Clothing’s new logo on the tag including a classy cursive logo on the right shoe. As my eye looked down the tongues, I noticed the patchwork of purple, yellow and black that meet up with the toes. This patchwork was hand sewn by the designer to replicate the colorful socks worn by the Joker.

The exterior sides of the Joker 4.0 feature images of the villain taking out the joker card to send a message to his targets. Sweatshop Clothing blew up the joker card image and replicated it several times on the interior sides of these shoes. The care that went into hand sewing the Joker 4.0 All Stars is impressive in its own right but the detail work on these sneakers is amazing. After looking at the designer’s laser-like focus on small details like the image on the joker card, I feel confident in saying that Sweatshop Clothing trumped the Joker 3.0.

Starry Night Converse All Stars

Designer Ilana Schwartz has joined the competitive field of sneaker art with her Starry Night Converse All Stars. The inspiration for Schwartz’s inaugural customs was the painting Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. Schwartz’s custom company, High Tied Customs, is available for paint jobs at reasonable rates by email at

The Starry Night Converse All Stars represent the famous painting well via the magic of Schwartz’s design and painting skills. We see the deep blue sky, the fiery yellow stars and white/yellow clouds that van Gogh so expertly created years ago. Schwartz painted the silhouetted black crag along the length of the tongue to complete this legendary image.

High Tied Customs got off to a fast start with the Starry Night Converse All Stars. Schwartz took on one of the legends in art history without going overboard or interpreting Starry Night to death. If Ilana Schwartz can handle such weighty material, it will be exciting to see what lies in the future for High Tied Customs.
