Remember The Simpsons x Converse shoe collection from the mid-2010’s?

The Simpsons are no strangers to having their likeness displayed on merchandise. The longest-running sitcom, animated or not, was featured on a couple Converse collections several years ago.

If you’ve been in the sneaker game for a while, you probably recall Vans teaming up with the Matt Groening’s characters when The Simpsons movie came out in 2007. In these two capsule collections that came out in 2013 and 2014, the collaborations leveraged Converse’s classic Chuck Taylor All Stars as their muse.

For as corny as The Simpsons could potentially be when printed onto shoes, we have to say that the Converse x The Simpsons collection doesn’t have a terrible shoe in the bunch.  With the right outfit, we’d rock Homer or Bart sneakers. When The Simpsons x Converse collaboration came out, it was only available from Converse directly or via outlets like Journeys. You can read more about the capsule collection at Sneaker News.
