From one pop culture icon to another, sneaker brand Converse celebrates the 80-year legacy of the cartoon character with its latest collection, Converse x Bugs Bunny. Created in the late 1930s, Bugs Bunny is among the many iconic cartoon characters loved by many generations. The anthropomorphic bunny starred in more than 150 cartoons earning him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and became the official mascot of Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Converse Philippines announced on an Instagram post that the collection’s Bug Bunny-inspired unisex high top shoes will be coming to the country. The brand’s signature Chuck 70 and Pro Leather are designed to mimic the character’s façade with two-tone gray and neutral color scheme, complete with faux fur details. The shoes also feature a Bugs Bunny and carrot embroidered patch on the heel and the character’s signature catchphrase, “What’s up Doc?”

The shoes will be available tomorrow at Sole Academy.
