How to Rock Your Converse This Winter

Despite being around for almost a century, Converse All Star sneakers haven’t changed too much in terms of design, according to a recent article by Couponbox. And why would they need to? Whether they’re being sported by 60s fashion icon Twiggy, 80s punk rocker Joan Jett or pop sensation Rihanna, All Stars exude a sense of authenticity that isn’t restricted to a specific period of time. They reflect the uniqueness of whoever is wearing them.


Created in 1917, Converse were originally sports shoes, but since the 50s and 60s they’ve been a fashion staple amongst men and women alike. Women in particular have found quirky ways to incorporate these shoes into their wardrobes. Converse All Stars come in a variety of colors and styles, meaning that there’s a pair out there for everyone. With winter fast approaching, Chuck Taylors are an ideal footwear choice: comfy, stylish and extremely versatile.

While fashion trends come and go, the effortless style of Converse All Stars remains constant, whatever the weather. The great thing about them is that they go with pretty much anything and are very gentle on the feet. Take a look at some of the trendy ways you can rock your All Stars in the cooler months!
