In honor of the many fans who’ve displayed excellence in the mastery of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), a weekly collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into our own super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Teen Titans x Converse sneakers, $35.99 [available at Journeys]
Teen Titans Robin x Converse sneakers, $37 [available at Converse]

Last Wednesday, I was invited to an event at the Converse store in SoHo, where I got an exclusive sneak peek on the latest and upcoming additions to the Converse x DC Comics collection. The shoes that immediately caught my eye were the Teen Titans Chucks, based off of the designs from the Teen Titans Go! cartoon series. While I wasn’t an avid fan of TTG!, I’m thrilled that Converse finally released kicks featuring my favorite sidekick.

Unfortunately, these Teen Titans sneakers are only available in youth sizes at the moment. Now, I know that I can’t be the only adult who wants Robin sneakers, right?*

Side note: the motif on the inner tongue of the Robin sneakers is killing me. I require a pair of Chucks with an allover Robin symbol motif ASAP.


*RIGHT.
