Footwear: Converse


Converse always keeps us on our toes when it comes to footwear, literally. What’s even better about the Converse brand is that it’s been out for such a long period of time and they still have a shoe for basically anyone, of any gender, of any personality and even any age. On Converse.com it declares, “An artist, rebel, rapper, thinker, gamer, skater, smoke jumper, freelance dentist, whatever. If you’re wearing Converse, you know who you are.” You really couldn’t say it any better yourself because you know you’ve witness babies and toddlers to even grown men and women wearing a pair of “cons”. The sneakers come in a variety of styles, colors, fabrics, fits, and heights and may even display a character from your favorite television show or movie on the shoe. For Spring 2014, Converse teamed up with Jack Purcell to produce a line of sneakers in neutrals and even apparel, which is a new step for the brand. Also, they designed a line with The Simpsons, 5 in total, three with the classic Chuck Taylor All Star covered in the characters and also Jack Purcell’s Slip –on and the XL Pro Leather Canvas with the characters as well. Also, the brand took a 1970s approach called the First String Collection, presented with a high top purple and low top cyan with extra added cushion, a larger more roomer toe box and a higher grade of canvas. Last but not least, a “Year Of The Horse” or “Chinese New Year” collection in red, white, black and gold. All releasing spring of 2014, take a look on Sneakernews.com and Converse.com for more details.
