To add to the personalization of the collection, D&D created custom graphics and colors for the footwear brand’s digital experience Converse by You. Fans will be able to customize their own pair of Chuck Taylor All Stars with shoe detailing inspired by the game.

The first glimpse of the collection will be at Gary Con XVI, an ultimate Dungeons & Dragons fan event. Starting on April 11, the Converse x Dungeons & Dragons collection will be available on the brand’s website and in select retailers worldwide.

Dungeons & Dragons has become one of the world’s most popular roleplaying games. Its iconic challenges and characters have allowed it to be mentioned in hit television series like Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Stars like Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez brought the characters to life in 2023 with the live action film, “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.”
