Trash Talk x Converse Pop-Up: Skaters and Sneakers Take Over One Weekend in LA

A recap of the Trash Talk x Converse pop-up store in Los Angeles, with photos from the weekend including the private party opening as well as business hours at the public store.

To celebrate Trash Talk and Converse’s new collaboration, we welcomed the band and sneaker pros to take over our gallery space in Los Angeles to create a totally unique and awesome experience that included housing a specially-constructed half-pipe, huge neon signs and, of course, exclusive Converse and Trash Talk merchandise.

To kick off the weekend-long event—which saw crowds including familiar faces of Kelly Osbourne, Frank Ocean, and Tyler, The Creator—the FLOOD Gallery opened up to close friends and fam of Trash Talk, Converse, and Active Ride Shop for a private launch party. DJ sets by Larry Susan, Left Brain, and AJ English soundtracked the late-night fun, and thirsts were quenched by complimentary tallboys of Pabst passed around.

Friday and Saturday were open to the public for anyone to skate the ramp, meet the band, and buy merchandise. On Saturday afternoon, Active Ride Shop brought in thirty lucky contest winners to shred alongside members of the professional CONS skate team.
