Jersey Gets Biggest Converse Mall Store Ever

It’s not really fair. Why is it that New Jersey is the lucky state to have Converse’s largest mall location?

As of this month, Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey, is home of Converse’s biggest mall store ever. So why did the Andover, Massachusetts-based Converse, Inc. choose this particular shopping mall for its location? According to the company’s press release regarding the event, the mall “evokes the sport and rock ‘n’ roll heritage of Converse.”

The 4,500-squre-foot store will not only feature a wide variety of Chuck Taylor All-Stars and other renowned shoe styles—it will also have a Converse Customization “Ink Bar” where fans can create one-of-a-kind shoes, accessories, and apparel.

Lucky Jersey folks.

Maybe there is finally a reason for me to go to Jersey after all!

Chuck Taylors Add Edge and Glamour to the Prom

It’s been a long time since I went to my high school prom (I’ll spare myself the embarrassment and won’t tell you exactly how long it’s been), and when I look back, I wish I had done a few things differently.

I wish I had said “yes” to the boy who I had a crush on instead of rejecting him for fear that I would star in a real-life rendition of Carrie.

I would have gotten a limo and would have indulged in all the things that you’re supposed to indulge in when riding in the back of a limo.

And I would have worn more comfortable shoes…Chuck Taylors, to be specific.

So for all you high school students who are looking forward to your upcoming prom, heed my advice. Head over to Converse’s website and check out their killer shoes that are sure to match your tux or dress.

Ladies, there are Chuck Taylors in virtually every color, so you can get the pair that perfectly matches your dress, whether it’s sunset orange or plum purple. My favorite? Chuck Taylor Premium Sequins, a simple low-rise Chuck Taylor sneaker adorned with silver sequins and sure to give your ensemble a little bling-bling.

Gentlemen…what’s more classic than a sleek, black tuxedo? It will go with your date’s gown, even if she’s chosen a less-than-flattering color such as puke green or glaring gold. And a pair of Chuck Taylor Leather shoes will give your tux that extra class (and comfort) it will need to get you through the night.

So what kind of Chuck Taylors do you think you’ll be sporting for your prom this year?
