Women have fashion sense and enjoy style in what they wear
Converse was originally a company that made rubber boots. Marquis Converse started the company in 1908 in Malden Massachusetts. The advent of American basketball and marketing an athletic shoe for the new sport grew the company quickly. Chuck Taylor, a well-known basketball player of the time, designed the iconic shoe that bears his name. Affectionately known as 'Chucks', the design has stood the test of time.
The Converse all star light series comes in canvas or leather. High top or low cut, a mid ankle boot and a multi strap boot in sizes for women and girls. The many styles and models match well with a number of outfits. Black or white match your more conservative looks while brighter colors can offset the outfit and set you apart from the crowd.
Leather uppers typically come in black, white or grey. Other colors may be available outside the United States. The canvas uppers, retained from the original design, have more color options. Blue, green, red and pink are favorites. There is an option on the company website to design your own unique shoe. Each panel of the shoe can have a different color or pattern. Stripes and laces are customizable to your liking.
The mid ankle boot is a slip on model with three snaps on the side for closing. The multi strap boot, a more adventurous look, is also a slip on with a zipper in the back. Adjustable straps on the front and side allow a snug fit. The high tops lace up with seven eyelets while the low cuts lace up with five eyelets. A euro styled super low cut version, the Skimmer has only two eyelets. A low cut slip on keeps the eyelets for the look.
The original All-Star shoe was designed for men's basketball. Many of the best players in the game have worn and endorsed them. They helped protect their feet and ankles from injury. Nevertheless, over the years this shoe has become quite a fashion statement. Celebrities and musicians have adopted them because they are comfortable and make a statement. Numerous stories have been written describing that couples have worn these shoes to their prom.
Whether you are on your feet all day, are relaxing in the evening or on weekends, Converse all star light sneakers will be easy and stylish on your feet. Whether you are looking for a comfortable shoe, to show some style or make a statement, the iconic brand and look has been a favorite for generations. It will no doubt continue to be a favorite for generations to come.
