DC Comics and Converse kick off Spring 2011 with a new collection for Converse's Chuck Taylors. Earlier in the summer, DC Comics and Converse came out with superhero-inspired Chuck Taylors, featuring action-packed scenes with bright, flashy colors. 

This time around the new collection is toned down appropriately for spring weather and is softer on the eyes.  Nevertheless, anyone who wants to get in on the action and likes comic books can rock their favorite superhero on their feet.

Implications - In the last few years, there has been a marked increase in the amount of Hollywood blockbusters about comic books or video games, and it's for this very reason. This kind of product licensing doesn't work with all brands, but these comic book kicks look like a must-buy for any sneakerhead or comic fan.
