WORDS BY ISAAC PERRY
Converse has to be one of the greatest sneaker brands ever to have existed, originating from the great US of A, the brand has gone on to global domination, with some of their designs being the most worn sneakers over the last couple of decades.
Funnily enough the Converse footwear was never intended to be a casual shoe with early designs created for the Basketball court, but then in the early 90’s the company found themselves fully submerged in the street style scene.
The most popular design being the Chuck Taylor, one of the most recognisable shoes of all time, however in more recent times the One star has increased in popularity thanks to the onslaught of new colour ways.
The new-borne popularity also comes with much thanks to multiple celebrity endorsements and collaborations on the one star. Just to name a few; Leo Mandella (@Gullyguyleo) is the face of the new campaign for the brand as well as Tyler the creator (@feliciathegoat) collaborating on the style to create the Converse X golf le fleur.
The Converse one star hotel is open for the next two days, offering the opportunity for a peak at their most recent and unique footwear as well as offering a chance to take a look at some of the workshops available.
Celebrity guests expected to make an appearance include; ASAP Nast, Young Lean and Tizzy T, alongside social media influencer Leo Mandella.
Converse have remained with the basic styling of their shoes. Now finding themselves a must have for every wardrobe due to it being incredibly versatile and thanks to a wider colour selection now introduced, there is a one star for every look you could possibly think of, and with spring just around the corner this is a shoe we highly recommend you pick up and stay true to size with!
