No matter how many times you might have tried sneakers from another brand, nothing is as classy and timeless as the classic Converse. This is, definitely, on my 'to buy' list for the summer, as my old Converse are about to die on me...
The All Star all white with just a hint of color - blue and red lines - and a logo are the way to go if you want your sneakers to be always in style. The rest of the styles, colors and with and/or without laces come and go... Make a right choice, shop now - don't forget, the summer is around the corner!
But if you ask me, these are my favorite from Converse classic collection:
These are called Chuck Taylor Shoreline ($50) and if you look closer, you'd see that they are classy BUT with a twist! Check out the back, it's not straight, but rather bendy. That's a new feature, and I kinda dig it. Compare to the Chuck Taylor All Star ($50) - the ultimate classic ones.
And if you absolutely must to create your own, you can! See how it's done here.
P.S. If you haven't noticed by now - the sneakers trend will never ever go away. While the wedge sneakers might soon go away, the classy ones are here to stay, so you might as well invest in your own sneakers. Plus, it's one of the best shoes to travel with - they match up any outfit, not to mention that they are beyond comfortable.
