The suspense is terrible. I hope it’ll last. Willy Wonka is our spirit animal for real. And in honor of the latest cinematic take on Roald Dahl’s iconic character, we get kicks! But not just any kicks, because Wonka deserves at least one of our favorite classics. Therefore, the Wonka Converse collection is gonna pay tribute to our favorite chocolatier! Magical, colorful, and funky… that’s what we think when we take a look at these babies. So, if you wanna know what we mean, you need to check them out too, shall we?
Wonka Converse Collection – Strike That. Reverse It.
Although Converse collabs usually go under the radar, this one probably won’t! After all, the upcoming Wonka movie really has everyone under its spell. In fact, critics think the movie is pretty charming so far. So, if you wanna get on some of the whimsical vibes, you’ll wanna catch these babies on December 7, 2023, before the movie drops on the 15th. This collection will drop on Converse.com, so make sure you don’t miss out!
Chocolate, Swirls, and Oompa-Loompas – Adults Will Experience the Wonka Magic!
Let’s start with the three stars of the lineup. First off, we have a chocolate swirl pair of Chuck 70s. The second Wonka Converse Chuck 70 colorway is a very Oompa-Loompa mix of orange upper and fluffy green laces. The inside of the tongue on both kicks features the quote “Never let them steal your dreams.” Both kicks will retail for $120 on drop day!
Finally, the third pair is the Wonka Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Swirl. And this colorway is by far the most whimsical among the kicks. For starters, the canvas upper features a pink swirl with “Wonka” branding all over it. The edges though feel like torn-up paper, which gives off the vibe of the Wonka chocolate wrappers! These babies will retail for $75, and they’re worth every penny.
For the Baller, a Golden Ticket
The Wonka Converse partnership really went wild with this one. You see, we have the All-Star BB Trilliant CX in a golden ticket vibe. These babies will retail for $130, and then you can bring the magic with you to the hardwood floor! In addition to the gold colorway, the sockliners feature a velvety burgundy color. So make sure you don’t miss out on these babies!
Wonka Dunks for the 5 Lucky Winners!
In addition to the awesome Wonka Converse collection, Timothée Chalamet went and collaborated with Nike on a mega-exclusive Dunk! These babies are straight out of the movie, and we’re here for all of that. However, only 5 pairs will be available for the public, and there’s a competition involved! You see, it’s kinda poetic since only 5 golden tickets were available for the kids in the original story. If you wanna learn more about this contest, check this out.
