guess it's some sort of tribal thing.
Isn´t fashion a type of mask?
i'm thinking they want you to consider converse as the original indigenous shoe tribe, the navajos of the sneaks.
Yea, the idea of a Converse tribe roaming around works I guess.
This, I think is a bit of a rip off (and a poor one at that) of the Nike masks made by Brian Jungen. His notion was to articulate a paradoxical relationship between a consumerist artifact and an 'authentic' native artifact. And they are stunning.http://www.secession.at/art/2003_jungen_e.html
