The iconic Converse sneakers return in a big way this year with fresh reworks of the beloved One Star range. After a successful and colourful collaboration with rapper Tyler, the Creator, the One Star silhouette shines bright once again. Sun & Sand Sports online has the latest season Converse One Star styles and colourways ready to buy now.
The world may be familiar with the Converse story and how basketball player Chuck Taylor became a shoe salesman – and eventually the name of the now iconic high-top and low-top Converse sneakers we love. The One Star silhouette that came a little later was originally designed for basketball too, but found its true legacy as a skateboarding sneaker.
During the ‘70s, the brand released low height basketball shoes with a new premium look. The canvas upper was replaced by suede and leather, and the All Star circle patch became a solitary star. They were simple tweaks, but they made a huge impact. In the early ‘90s, the taste for vintage, alternative and the emerging surfing and skateboarding scene brought about the resurgence of the One Star into the market. It even appeared on the feet of rebellious icons like rocker Kurt Cobain and legendary skater Guy Mariano. Converse sneakers became the symbol of the evolving youth culture and creativity we love to this day.
Today, at a time when retro styles are revived and street wear is the norm, Converse unveils the new One Star in all its plush suede and matte leather glory. The new iterations are perforated for breathability and cushioned with an Ortholite® insole. The toe box is narrower for a better fit and the vulcanised rubber sole has been improved for traction. But what makes these iconic shoes cooler are the fresh colourways that match any personality and are adaptable for any season. Just check out these suede pastels and monochrome leathers for fall.
