Converse Sneakers: Shoes with Cult Status
Converse sneakers are an absolute American classic and belong in every wardrobe or shoe rack. These cult sneakers have been around for almost 100 years and come in a huge variety of colours and designs. Whether you’re male or female, Converse sneakers are the perfect addition to any street style.
The Chuck Taylor All Star: Considered the Most Successful Shoe in History
Designed by basketball player Chuck Taylor, the Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker / basketball shoe was the beginning of a new era in the sports shoe world. The design, which has sold over a million pairs, symbolises a cool, creative lifestyle: for decades “Chucks” have been as much a staple of the urban day to day life as bread and butter. Whether with jeans, leggings, shorts or a miniskirt, Chuck Taylors offer you unlimited styling possibilities.
Many have tried to copy the classic Chuck Taylor All Star and many have failed. The original shoe remains unbeaten to this day, bearing the famous “star chevron” logo. These cult classics boast the following basic features:
- All Star Brand Patch
- Ribbed outsole
- Vulcanised sole
- Robust canvas or leather uppers
- Laces with metal eyelets
- Rounded rubber toecap
One Model, Many Designs
Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars are available in unisex, men’s and women’s models. Every year the label comes out with a whole new range of seasonal heavy hitters. You can choose between mid-top shoes that leave your ankle free to do what it wants, or high-top models that give you a little extra support - even extra high sneakers are available. With the Chuck Taylor All Star Winter Shoes you don’t have to worry about going without your favourite sneakers in the colder months - these sneakers are as good as any winter boot. Made with robust leather outers, these shoes will keep your feet nice and dry, while the snuggly inner lining keeps those toes toasty and warm.
