What started out as a rubber shoe company that specialized in galoshes, later became a company with one of the most recognizable and iconic sneakers of all time. Converse® created the “All Star” basketball sneaker, in 1920, with the sole (pun intended) purpose of shooting hoops and standing out on the court. After the evolution of their sport-inspired shoes, such as the Chuck Taylor® All Star® and Jack Purcell® shoes, Converse® undoubtedly became a brand built around storytelling and expressing oneself.
Converse® offers an extensive line of footwear in many different shapes, sizes, materials, and colors; but they don’t stop there. Converse® created clothing and even accessories, varying from hats, gloves, and scarves to help expand your story. Add a few more pages to your wardrobe, so you can customize your own personal style.
Regardless of whom you are, and what you do, Converse® has the perfect get-up you need to feel, and be your true self. Don’t ever be worn down and bored by basic, dress yourself in the timeless, and always evolving, Converse®.
I am loving these shoes so much. I really like the look of classic All-stars, but stopped wearing them because they are pretty uncomfortable. These are so much better. I wear these to work where I am standing and walking for most of the day and they are really comfortable. They have a lot more cushion than the regular Chucks, but still look very similar.
Converse is the best sneaker brand in the biz, super comfortable and zappos rock!
I love this twist on the classic Converse sneaker, they're very cute and trendy. The shoe definitely fits true to size- I ordered a 9.5 and 10, and my normal 10 fit best. I remember always having to size down with my Converses back in the day, but that is not the case with this style. I agree with other reviewers who said these shoes make large feet look smaller as well! I've only worn them twice so far and they are pretty comfortable overall, just a little rubbing on my pinky toes. I don't have wide feet, but the toe box seems fairly narrow. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase!
These shoes are very comfy & stylish. I like that you can wear them with casual or a little dressier clothes, too. I would recommend. The silver is nice and shiny & I really like the python pattern with the metallic shoe.
Great for every day.
Super cute Converse! They are by FAR my favorite I have ever purchased from this brand. The white doesn't do much to make my feet look smaller - if that is a concern, I would recommend getting one of the other colors. These shoes look great with jeans, shorts, sundresses and leggings. They are okay without socks for a short time but not super comfortable because the seams and tongue are annoying. I purchased the Converse brand "cut for chucks" socks with this shoes; however, they are not "no show" enough and so I will have to find another brand to wear with these. Like other shoes from this brand, they are not very supportive and I would not wear these for long periods of time or in situations where I would be walking a lot. They are perfect for weekend wear around town. I will be ordering other colors - highly recommended.
Chuckies are Chuckies. In my day these were "athletic shoes" but today they are just stylish farting around the house shoes. For just about EVERY special purpose there is a more suitable shoe, and yet there's nothing 197 0's styling like this 58 year old man with his Grandchildren grocery shopping at Albertson's in a clean, new pair of CHUCKIES!
I love chucks!! These are brighter orange than the picture shows but still love them. Think more of a safety orange. I wear a 9 normally and when I order chucks I wear an 8.5.
Love these shoes and love Zappos's! I bought these and the tongue was funky and rubbed against the top of my foot so I contacted customer service and they shipped out a different pair but same size and the new ones are fabulous! Comfy and so cute with so many things!! I have 3 different colors is these!
I'm new to Chucks, I was mostly searching for an all white classic high top trainer so I went for these... but I couldn't help but order a pair of the classics as well so I'll try to compare them here. As others have noted, these offer more support, so you're feet will probably thank you in the long run. However, I wouldn't say they're more comfortable than the classics per se, at the moment I kind of prefer the lightness of the classics compared to the II's comparative heaviness (not that heavy) and thickness (tho to be fair I haven't worn the classics out and about yet.) These also are definitely true to size: there is the same 1inch wiggle room in the 1/2size down of the classics I got. Main plus is the style: I'll probably wear them more often because all white is more versitle. All that said, the II's a bit wider than the classics, and if the classics came in all white I would have just gotten those because I prefer the narrowness, which is part of what makes the classics just look and feel more classic, like you're playing bball in 1978 or running around Edinburgh shooting up in Trainspotting... they look like beaters you can't wait to get dirty compared to the *slight* fanciness of the II's you want to avoid staining... long story short, these are great, cheaper and (probably) better for long days on your feet, but if you're in love with your classics they probably won't be a replacement. If you're crazy like me, just get both!
