Snoop Dogg for Converse 

The Chuck Taylor has been a permanent fixture in West coast Hip Hop since the 80s, but in the early 90s it had lost its popularity in other regions with the introduction of sneakers like Nike’s Air Force One, Adidas’ Shell-Toe, and anything with Jumpman logo. That all could’ve changed if a young MC named Snoop Doggy Dogg had become a part to Converse’s creative vision. Snoop’s ability to sell a product was solidified when he appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in a Tommy Hilfiger sweater and the sweater sold out that next day.
