Okay, let’s face it. Technology is changing and that means that we are seeing a lot of new styles when it comes to fashion and especially shoes. Outside of health benefits and ergonomics (I mean, the Chuck Taylors are super comfortable #amiright) we are seeing a lot of design changes.
TeenVogue reports on the new collection from Converse x Nike where they use the Flyknit fabrics and design styles on the Converse Chuck Taylor Sneaker. Sure, it’s not the standard canvas but do these look sweet. Plus, I bet they breathe really nicely which is great for Chucks.
They have the Toe Bumper, Stripe, and the insole of the Converse Chuck Taylor II so there is no doubt these will be some comfy sneakers.
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.
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.
Not only are these styles fresh and bold, but they are a limited edition series so be sure to grab them while they are still available.
So we’ve all heard about the “worn” look on any Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker, but how do you get that clean cut look that’s just enough rough and also looks great with your best pair of slacks?
The answer is hand-dying them. That’s what Tenue de Nimes does and you can get your very own pair.
This is by far the best look we’ve seen with the freshness of a new pair of shoes but the worn out look to show that your Chucks have character. The best part about it is that you can rough them up and add your own stories to these pari of beautiful sneaks, and the stylized colorations will remain.
We give these Chucks 10/10 for their beauty, artistic style, and it’s just a damn good story to say that your Chucks were hand dyed. But, with everything great in life, it comes with a hefty price tag.
Japanese Pop Up store White Atelier in the Harajuku, Shibuya district of Tokyo brings a fresh look to custom Chuck Taylors. Inside the shop you will see an array of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars and Chuck Taylor II shoe variations. Greeted by Japanese generosity, customers are invited to customize their Converse Chuck Taylor shows directly in the store.
Converse has released a new version of the Chuck Taylor sneaker. This season we have been blessed with the Down Jacket Converse Chuck Taylor style. Replacing the traditional canvas with the appearance of a down jacket, the retro style and very comfortable-looking shoes are now available on the Converse online store. These slick sneaks are entitled “Converse All Star Chuck ’70 Down Jacket” Check ’em out!
