Take a look at any fashion blog and you’re sure to notice that sneakers have made their mark in the fashion world. No longer reserves for the gym or weekend wear, sneakers have become the “it shoe” no matter what the occasion.
I remember Converse from my childhood. Back then, we used to colour in the white rubber tips with designs and change the laces to express our own unique style. While back then our options were limited to colour, the new holiday 2015 collection shows that Converse has evolved with the times to offer not only different colours and textures, but also shoes designed for different seasons. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to the new collection, but first, a little style inspiration!
For holiday 2015, Converse is rolling with the times, and when I say the times, I mean the cold-ass weather that’s about to hit. They’ve update the classic Chuck Taylor II with new colours like bold grey Thunder, vibrant neon yellow Volt and (my personal favourite) an eye-catching maroon Bordeaux and included a Nike Lunarlon sockliner for added comfort. The new collection also includes winterized styles in the form of their rubber collection, which has a wool lining, winterizer eyelets, and a new canvas-backed rubber upper to easily trek through rain and snow. Here’s a closer look at the new collection.
