The popularity of tie-dyeing seemingly has no end. The clamor for this nostalgic print shows no signs of slowing down. The trend returned in the spring, in part because of all the stay-at-home orders that have been the norm during this COVID-19- time. The hiatus at home has apparently restored a lot of creative juices, leading to a resurgence in DIY crafts that has, of course, included tie-dyeing. Now it wouldn’t be a tie-dye craze if it didn’t include footwear, and thanks to a new collaboration between iconic sneaker brand Converse and “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown, there’s a sneaker that tie-dye fans will definitely want to add to their closets.
The Millie Bobby Brown Converse collection has three tie-dye graphics — one in black-and-white, another in yellow-and-blue, and finally, one in green-and-pink palettes— which you can mix and match for a custom Chuck 70 sneaker design. There is also a tie-dye Chuck ankle patch that can be added to a solid-colored sneaker or one of the above-mentioned designs for all-out tie-dye design impact. As an added plus these kicks are customizable on Converse’s website, allowing you to mix and match.
“I hope they enjoy the happiness it gives off. I hope others feel the same way I feel when I see them, which is pure excitement and joy,” Brown was quoted as saying about the collection on the Converse website.
The actor, beauty entrepreneur, and activist previously worked with Converse. She has also been an ambassador for the last three years, on a line of ocean- and sunset-themed sneakers inspired by Brown’s love for the ocean and whales that came out last summer.
