Converse has unveiled its latest piece of footwear – a pair of Chuck Taylors with an integrated wah guitar pedal.
The prototype for the Chuck Taylor All Wah was first conceived of three years ago by design company Critical Mass, but it took a collaboration between CuteCircuit and Converse to bring the shoe to life.
The shoe functions like a wah pedal, with built-in dual plugs to connect with a guitar and an amp. Bluetooth connects to the Wah Box for the wah effect. The All Wah can also be used with an iPhone.
In February and March 2016, 13 guitarists were chosen to try out of the All Wah Chuck Taylors on stage. — AFP Relaxnews
