More than just All Stars..

In the early 1900's, they started creating tennis shoes, over a century later the brand is still alive and brings us a low cut, high-top, leather or canvas sneaker.

My memory of the Converse is the One Star Classic, which debuted in 1974. Converse will be recreating their classic for the Spring 2010 collection. Straight from the vault, the One Star Classic 74 carefully replicates the original low-cut profile and suede upper. The resurgence offers exact detailing taken from original pattern and style designs, paying homage to One Star originality that’s sure to appeal to old fans and new sneaker fans alike.

Jack Purcell, a noted badminton and tennis player joined forces with Converse and is moving from land to sea this season with the Jack Purcell Edward Boat shoe (pictured left). The shoe, available in twill and is completed with the optimistically iconic Jack Purcell toe-smile.

Not only does Converse make wearable shoes that appeal to all, they are also socially conscious as well. They have the CONVERSE (PRODUCT) RED™ shoes where 5% of the net price go to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Geneva, Switzerland). 

For a justifiable conscience or just fashion sake, Converse is here to stay. Why not brighten up the February blues with a new pair or two?
