Converse to launch shoe with built-in guitar pedal

The trainers will wirelessly connect to a Wah Box, Mac or iPhone

Converse are set to release a new trainer with a built-in guitar pedal.

The ‘Chuck Taylor All Wah’ will feature a wah pedal in the sole of the shoe.

According to Pitchfork, a prototype was produced in 2013 and was designed by Critical Mass. Now company Cute Circuit have developed it into a finished product.

The shoe works via micro-sensor technology that tracks the flex of the sole, sending signals to a Wah Box via bluetooth.

The shoes will work with an amp, or can be connected to a Mac or iPhone.

There is currently no release date for the trainers. Watch a video featuring the prototype design of the new Converse below.
