“Always a brand (Converse) for those independent enough not to follow, the young company would take up with a young sport: Basketball.”– CONVERSE
So seeing as some of my posts have been disappearing, I felt it was SO necessary to do a re-post!
I was thrilled when asked to go view the debut of CONVERSE’s Spring 2010 collection.
I admit, I loved CONVERSE shoes from afar… I’m only 5”2, so pumps are always an automatic…I only received my first pair of “Chucks” (Prettiest fuscia you ever seen!) about a year ago and now that I’ve had a one-on-one experience with these bad boys; I’m definitely a fan!
There’s a certain “je ne sais quoi” that CONVERSE shoes have had since the beginning of the CONVERSE era back in 1908 and they still got it!CONVERSE celebrates the influence of Punk Rock and Pop Art for Spring; honouring how music and art have changed the world. Robert Indiana, and Punk legends Blondie and The Clash inspired the latestChuck Taylor All Star Footwear Collection.Through partnerships with pioneering brands, The Clash and Blondie; the collection showcases “fresh” interpretations of landmark moments in the history of music.CONVERSE by John Varvatos debuted the first ever premium Star Chevron Collections for the spring. The Luxe interpretation of the CONVERSE classic includes; the Pro leather 76 and the Star Player. (I’m digging their names! Lol)The collection was inspired by CONVERSE’S rich heritage in basketball, as well as John Varvatos’ passion for rock n roll and distinct attention to detail.“The shoes combine a rich, hand-crafted look and feel with a downtown rocker edge; resulting in the perfect 70s basketball meets rock n’ roll vibe.” – CONVERSEThe Pro Leather 76 and Star Player made their debut this spring within the the J.V collection; both styles bear the Star Chevron logo, feature luxe leathers, special logo treatments, and waxed and burnished finishes for a “broken feel.”
Did you know: CONVERSE also made tires back in the day?Thanks to everyone at Converse Canada,
