While Vans pays homage to legendary rock group KISS, Converse has also made large strides to recognize influential people/groups in music including the Grateful Dead. The Grateful Dead was originally formed in 1965 and used several styles of music including rock, folk, bluegrass, reggae and many others. Converse takes note to their contributions and releases the All Star High dedicated to the group. The All Star High uses a subtle combination of a white base, black accents and large graphic of a female skeleton. Check with your local Journeys for the Grateful Dead All Star High as they have already appeared online.
