How can a shoe that’s been around forever still seem so very, very ‘now’? I suppose the All Star Chuck Taylor’s success is due to a winning combination of not messing with a clean, classic shape, heavy on screen/stage/track presence and the fact that when Converse do choose to collaborate they get it absolutely spot on. Speaking of which, this Friday sees the release of the Converse X Size? All Star Ox Premium Pack. An exclusive and immense collection of Chucks that have been created using a fantastic premium ‘nappy’ suede in four beautifully subtle, summery colours with an embossed leather tongue tab, elevating a ubiquitous, timeless shoe into an instant, must-have luxury and all for £55! This is the summer shoe as far as I’m concerned, so top marks to all concerned.
