Pre lets you meet up with your friends in style

Have you ever had to pick up a friend but was not sure of their exact location? How about on the other end of the spectrum where you’re being picked up by a friend but don’t know exactly where they’re at? There is a new app that just launched in Canada that is helping you do exactly that – know where your friends are at.

Pre lets you see exactly where your friends are – but not in a creepy way. Other apps always share your location or make it confusing to share your destination. Pre conveniently lets you send your close friends and family a destination and bonus: it has emojis 🎉.

 

 

You can check out Pre on the iOS app store. Looks like the app is currently launched in Canada. Be sure to snap photos of your Chuck Taylor sightings using the app! #chuckspotting

Converse Essentials

The Converse Essentials line was announced earlier this year. We caught a glimpse of the shop opening in Berlin, Germany.

The Essentials, a Fall 2016 collection bears some of the classics that have been a staple in Converse and American design/apparel. They claim that the essentials line “becomes even softer with each wear”. The collection, with the FRAGMENT label includes t-shirts, hoodies, and more.

Personally, I am a big fan of the classics and the Essentials line so this is something that I will be splurging on! Looking forward to a warm and cozy holiday season with this new line.

Chuck Taylor Fulton

Chuck Taylor Fulton is out with new styles. The classic rubber sole with a modern sneaker look and a pull tab for the heel. The Chuck Taylor Fulton is a clean cut look on a classic sneaker.

The Fulton is currently on display at select Converse stores around the world. What makes these sneakers super fresh is the stylistic pattern on the side with a Converse fit but modern look.

Converse Pride Collection

Converse Shoes

The Converse Pride collection comes to us with vibrant rainbow colors and wild stylistic updates to our favorite Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Shoe. With Pride Parades coming to us throughout the nation, it’s a nice way to show off what we and others stand for – equality for all. San Francisco, being one of the largest pride parades in the nation, will kick off on June 25th so these Chucks come just in time for the festivities.

Chuck Taylor II in Neon

Since the release of the Chuck Taylor II, we are seeing a lot of exciting collaborations and stylistic changes and updates in the new version of the shoe. Very exciting! Recently they announced a new neon set of the Chuck Taylor II. The colors are bright and very spring-like, perfect for the transition to summer and also getting them a bit roughed up in the mud!

We are a big fan of the neon color especially for its release date around this time. This goes to show that Converse is willing to stay true to the classics but also jump away from the original colors and perhaps bring out some additional variations of styling in addition to the color in the future. We would love to see a Slim version of the Chuck Taylor II, but one can only hope!

 

Silicon Valley and the Converse Sneaker

The attire of Silicon Valley comes up quite a bit when it comes to matters of professional attire. The “hacker” look which typically consists of a hoodie and jeans is becoming a popular staple in the software development and hi-tech community. As tech focused companies are starting to sprout in different regions of the world, we are seeing that this fashion sense is going along with it.

Part of the attire includes hoodie, jeans, and the oh so common sneaker, often times being a Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker. Underneath the hood however, you’ll see venture capitalists sporting expensive watches and designer jeans despite wearing a hoodie with sneakers – the wealth is still there.

The reason for this lack of typical suite jacket and leather shoes is that the founders and entrepreneurs are said to be so focused on the product that they are creating, that they need to be as comfortable as possible. Moreover, founders like Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page have been known to wear the same exact thing every day because it’s “one less decision to make”.

Perhaps the trend of wearing hoodies and Converse sneakers will spread to other industries, perhaps even Wall Street.
