The classic Chuck Taylor All Stars were inspired by the basketball court and eventually came to encapsulate the spirit of the sport. Now, there’s not only hi-tops but a whole range of styles, which allow anyone to express their personality. Check out some of our favourite men’s options below:
Design Your Own
Converse stand for individuality, and there’s no better way to let your footwear do the talking than with a pair of personalised sneakers. You can design your own Converse online, with the option to customise originals as well as modern styles such as canvas slips. You can add your name to the heel stripe, change the colour of the lace eyelets and even add limited-edition graphics to the tongue.
Star Plyr Ox
The Star Plyr Ox design puts a retro twist on the traditional low-top pumps, with a star and chevron logo replacing the Chuck Taylor badge on the side. The construction is also sturdier, with extra padding for additional comfort, but they still have that distinctive Converse look. tReds is currently offering the sneakers in a range of colours, and many are on sale – there’s free UK delivery, too.
Loud and proud
There is a huge range of Converse trainers featuring loud graphics and bold prints – perfect when you want to make a statement. You’ll find limited-edition comic strip designs, graffiti art, ultra-bright colours, and there’s even a range of Gorillaz Converse available. Some trend-setters even choose to mix and match their pairs to create different looks.
Converse might be the ultimate casual shoe – they’re perfect for dressing down a suit – but there are some styles that perfectly complement a more dapper look. We particularly like the range of leather Jack Purcell sneaker boots and the all-black hi- and low-tops. The super-low-profile, slim pumps are also a smarter option for nights out.
