ALL IN THE DETAILS: Crazy For Converse

In today’s generation, sneakers are a staple for any and every college student out there. Whether you use them to run three miles at the rec center or pair them with your favorite pair of shorts or pants, they are a must-have. And who knew that a shoe brand form the 1920s could make such a comeback? As if the title doesn’t already give it away, I am most definitely referring to Converse shoes.

What originally started off as a canvas basketball sneaker is now fashion statement. They are shoes that are made for both males and females and can be worn for anything. Shopping, out to dinner, running errands, listening to music, going to work or adventuring outside—just throw on a pair and you can do whatever you want in them. I remember getting my very first pair of high-top hot pink Converse sneakers at the age of nine. I never thought that 11 years later I would walk into Journey’s and still purchase the same exact ones. High-top or low-top, beginning of the rainbow or end, you can find Converse in any color, which makes buying a pair that much more exciting. And not to mention, you can even customize your own!

This Fashionisto is showing off his all-black high-top Converse sneakers. He completes his ensemble with a solid gray T-shirt and a pair of faded jeans. It’s a perfect summer outfit that can also be re-worn in the fall. Whether this Fashionisto has on dark denim with a bright colored shirt or light denim with a dark colored shirt, his all-black Converse will match either way. It’s always a great idea to have at least one pair of sneakers that can be worn no matter how many times you mix and match an outfit!

How To: For those of you looking to create a similar look, you can find Converse at your local Journey’s shoe store and also online. Stores such as Payless and Sketchers also sell similar versions at a cheaper price. Casual or not, these shoes can go with anything, so get creative and have fun putting your own look together!
