Comic book nerds rejoice! As Converse and DC Comics head into their sixth season of collaborating on the iconic Chuck Taylor sneakers, the dream team released two new designs for spring 2012 exclusively on Journeys.com—the Wonder Woman low-tops and the Killer Croc high-tops. Wonder Woman will be added to the already killer roster of Batgirl and Catwoman sneaks, and features a red, white, and blue pop art design that TOTALLY reminds us of Roy Lichtenstein’s handiwork. (And that’s super awesome.) An American flag design wraps around the back of the heel, with Wonder Woman hard-core smizing in her iconic gold tiara on the outer side of the shoes. The red and blue halftone extends to the rubber toe, and we LOVE the pop of azure blue on the tongue with her signature scrawled along the top of the laces. We could totally see sporting these bad boys with skinny jeans and a tee—especially at moments when you feel you need a pop of bold color with a serious side of woman empowerment. (I mean, let’s be honest, any boy that challenges you to a dodgeball duel at recess in these sneaks has absolutely NO chance.)
If you’re feeling a bit more sinister, snatch up a pair of the evil green Killer Croc sneakers. Absolutely no one will want to mess with someone sporting one of Batman’s scariest archenemies on their shoes. The lime and forest green scaly halftone is featured across most of the shoe with bits of paint splattered across the top. The Killer Croc is spotted crawling on the back of the sneaker with his logo scrawled across the inside panel in a soft light blue. Both shoes will be available in unisex sizes and retail for $59.99 exclusively at Journeys. The Wonder Woman sneaker hits stores April 2 and the Killer Croc shoe will be available starting April 9, but you can swipe up either pair right now on Journeys.com!
