This summer, I spent a couple of weeks looking for cool All Star high tops with my friend Anna, here visiting from Sweden. Everything is more expensive where she lives, and Converse high tops are still very in style. Turns out almost no one here carries interesting high tops anymore. We found black and white and one pair of blue in size 14 mens.
I have vivid memories of my older cousin, anti-social in his teens (or perhaps just unimpressed with his boring younger cousin?), playing a lot of video games and wearing a wide variety of loud, neon All Star high tops. Who knew I’d be wishing for those shoes so many years later?
Here’s my first stab at designing my own:
I would totally rock these.
Have you ever designed your own shoes on one of the many sites online? What do your Converse dream shoes look like?
