So I finally bought myself a pair of converse the other day. My very first pair!
And I love them!
Who knew there were so many types to choose from though?! One Star, All Star, Classic Chuck, Chuck ‘70, Chuck II, Chuck Modern and Jack Purcell.
I didn’t have a clue what I was doing or where to start so I asked my converse-wearing friends for advice. They steered me in the direction of low-top Chuck Taylor All Stars. But still, the confusion continued as I had to choose between platform, dainty, lean and classic styles!
Looking online, I had my heart set on dainty but when I tried them on in person the classic fit was just so much comfier! They make look bigger on my feet than the dainty cut, but I think I’ll soon get used to them.
Apparently once you go classic, there’s no turning back!
I love the classic colours and the low top cut looks good with either jeans or a dress, so it’s the perfect option for summer.
I don’t think I’ll be venturing into high top territory any time soon but I’m definitely a converse convert! There’s a type and style out there for everyone.
