Converse - Still All-Stars

I'm being serious now but I had no idea converse shoes were still in. I mean they're really in. According to the fashionistas, these (not louboutins) are what the cool people are wearing ;-) But no, my friends, I seriously need to start looking for a new pair. I got rid of my black low tops years and years ago. And quite honestly, I have no idea why, I loved them and used to wear them every single day! Do you still wear yours? What color do/did you sport?

Oh, how I wish I could wear Converse (or Keds or Pumas for that matter). But my insanely high arches deem them way too uncomfortable. They are so adorable, though. And if I could, I would rock a bright yellow.

I've been noticing the same thing!

I love that they are coming back!!!! I'm debating on which color to get! I like the dark pink ones or the bright green ones. I think they will look so cute with some jean shorts and a floral top. :D

Catherine said...

I have never owned a pair of Converse but after seeing that bottom left picture I REALLY want a black pair :)

Pia said...

I love my converse!! They're the most comfortable shoes ever. I only own black ones, but I'm thinking about saving some money and getting a more colorful pair.

Valerie said...

I used to have a black pair and got rid of mine too and now I'm kicking myself for it. I'd love to get a turquoise or purple pair. That's going on my wish list. :)

Olivia said...

Love the black ones! When ever I see someone wearing converse shoes I can't help but think they're cool.

Katie said...

The last time I wore Converse, I was in elementary school and trying to dress like Punky Brewster. I probably just made myself sound really old lol.

D&D said...

that photo of Demi is killer.
i might polka dot my cons...inspired!

Naomi said...

Haha, I'm wearing my converse as I read this. I don't do it to be cool... but they are better looking than regular sneakers!

LouBoo said...

I have found newfound love of Converse; it kinda passed me by first time round! I have them (white), my kids have them (red and black), my husband has them (grey). We are slightly obsessed...

Simone said...

I am with Louise, my love of them is newfound too!

My daughter has been wearing them since last year but it's only been the last month or so, that I have bought two pairs.....navy and purple.

I walked all over Paris in mine and they were so comfy, LOVE them!!!

:)

Allison said...

Chucks are so fun! You can design your own, paint them... so much to do! Haha, I have a boring pair of black high tops, but am definitely looking into something more interesting. :D

Kate said...

I've got a black pair and a dark blue pair. I love them, thye are so comfortable!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

I like them even better than I used to! Pick up a fun pair!

iamchasingthirty said...

I'm a huge fan of the slip ons but think I might have to grab a pair of the white high tops. Boyish but cute!

Scacco alle Regine said...

Yeah! Great Jen!
Here's the COnverse'Style! :-)

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Yay for converse! I have a patchwork pair from college and they are dirty and worn out but love them still! I saw a cute sparkle pair in O Magazine this month...so fun!

Deanna said...

I love seeing Converses paired with bare legs. I have an old, beat-up pair of black ones, and since I've lost the shoelaces, I've strung them with pink ribbon. They're suuuuper comfy.

ashlina said...

oh i just love these photos.....demi is gorgeous.

Debby Lee said...

I have a grey pair, super comfy!

Vintage Obsession said...

as much as i like them i am alays confused about how to pair them right what kind of clothes to wear them with ,but they are actually so much fun when worn right also helps if you have to run around the whole day

lorena said...

You know just last sunday I saw a girl sporting a pair of white knee high Converse! I scratched my head for a while....
I have pair os black Skechers that look like Converse, I should try wearing them more often.

Elif G. said...

i can never get enough of converses.. i wear them all the time..
i have a lo-top white pair and a black pair
and also a hi-top beige with blue shoelace rims and a brown with pink&white butterflies on it..
and now i am thinking of getting either a red or purple pair :))

Happenstance said...

Yes, I still have mine and they are soooo worn out! They're black low tops w/black laces. They're so old, they're faded. I keep meaning to buy new one's but the one's I have are too comfy and they know me so well:)

Fashion Cappuccino said...

I think they're perfect to run around and so cute!! I have a beige one that I hardly wear but I'm thinking of wearing them again with my summer shorts! xoxoxoxoxxo

SabinePsynopsis said...

Looking at these pictures I'm seriously wondering if I shouldn't get a pair (again), too. It's been ages, but hey, yes, they do look cool!

Mel said...

I love Converse! Keds too, I used to wear all those growing up! Love the pics!

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

I love love mine!

Bumpkin on a Swing said...

I still have a red pair from the last time they were in. Fashion always comes back. At least you can walk in these, not so in CLous!
But still honey, CLous are fashion at it's best!

LifestyleBohemia said...

I'm with you - I had no idea converse were back until I saw my lil sister wearing them. So I grabbed a pair too :)

Leah said...

I used to wear red and blue low tops when I was younger. I love Converse.

Ahn said...

i sport white ones that look exactly like the ones 6 picture down. dirty as can be. converse rock.
...i have to say though...my TOMS are more comfy.

Gabby / Gypsy*Diaries said...

I just bought the one that´s on pic 3... :) xxx

Kerri said...

Love the old converse, but now that my teenage kids wear them, I feel like I maybe shouldn't any more. But I might buy myself a new pair just to upset them! K xx

Velvet Rose said...

cool pics! ^-^

The Zhush said...

This is an amazing round up of this trend! I can't really wear it, but I love it on others.

OneCraftyFox said...

I have always loved them on other people, but have not worn a pair myself since I was about 12 yrs old!

Have a great weekend, Jen!

Design Darling said...

Is This Real Life? said...

Olivia said...

I wear converse everyday!!!! I have a black and white pair. I need more. I work at Nike and we own converse so it works out nicely!! thanks for sharing these pictures!

Living It At Home said...

Running out and getting a pair! My daughter wears heres all the time...so cute!

Kare@Trublue2 said...

I wear mine everywhere!! So comfy. So cool. Sadly, they're not my natural canvas originals...but an exact replica. My son rocks the black hi-tops. Love that he thinks I'm pretty hip because of them. Great post, as always I continue to enjoy your blog!!

Have a lovely weekend!!

Kare

Mandy said...

I love mine I have 3 pairs, 2 in white, but mine are leather instead of canvas, they last so much longer and get better with age and I also have a beige pair in canvas....love photo 6.... such a classic !!!

Miri said...

Great post - I really love the studded converse (I've seen them on a lot of blogs lately - do you know if it's DIY or if they're actually sold in stores? - cause if I can't get hold of the Missoni ones I would go for the studded version....)

Geisslein said...

Chucks are my BIG LOVE...since almost 26 years now...my favorites for the moment are silver and gold ones in leather...they simply looks cool! have a great day today! greetings from germany, geisslein

Jen said...

Miri - Go for the Missoni ones that you have on your site! Those are fab. But as for the studded one's pictured I'm sure they're not DIY (although you probably could if you wanted to) but I'd google them and see if you can find them anywhere. Good luck on your search!

SPLENDEROSA said...

OMG, the pic of Demi is so beautiful. I only wear hightops, of course, with Swarovski crystals, you know the unpretentious ones.

Jen said...

Ladies - I was just at Target last night and had no idea they carried converse!! They had some great pink ones, denim ones and a bunch of other colors. And guess what? They were on sale for cheap... think they were about 16 bucks!!

Daisy said...

heck yea! these never go outta style as far as I'm concerned. I love that you posted about them! I sport bright color low tops - I have a purple pair and a green pair. my boyfriend sports more neutral colors like black, brown and grey. I want to get high-tops. what color do you think I should get?!
