Shoe Porn: All Converse, All the Time

This is a Converse post from someone who didn’t get her first pair until she was twenty-seven. I know, I’m new. It’s weird. Let’s try to get past it, or maybe celebrate it a little with a post about some of the pairs of Converse I want in that brand-new-to-them sort of way.

First up are the classic Chuck Taylors. Well, actually, these are called the “Chuck Taylor All Star Specialty Ox” and I don’t really know what that means, but I like the Beluga color they come in. They’re currently ten bucks off at $44.99.

These are not ten bucks off. They’re $170, which is ridiculous, but they’re really, really cool-looking. (I think the reason for both is the leather situation. Moo-spensive.) Apparently these are the “Star Player EVs.” Yep. No clue. But look at the interesting!

Stripes! Holiday stripes, actually. Appropriately festive; must wear with a party dress ASAP. (These are sixty bucks.)

The Jack Purcell Johnny Ox “features a revamped style of the 75-year-old classic Jack Purcell sneaker with a modern twist.” It’s kind of boyish in a dirty skater sort of way, so of course I love it. (Fifty-one bucks.)

Back to the classics: Chuck Taylor High Top All Stars.

Admittedly, these prices are about average for sneakers. I wish I could give you better online deals, but I will say that finding a pair on sale in store isn’t too hard – Fred Meyer has a ton on sale right now. If you’re willing to hunt, scroll through this list and look for your specific size. The fewer sizes available, the better deal you’ll find.

ConArt. (I heart Etsy.)

    I approve of this post. I love me some Converse. They are my go-to shoe for spring and summer. I sometimes wear sandals in the summer, but if I’m going to be out for a long period of time in the sun, I like to avoid weird foot tan lines from my sandals.

    I like to keep an eye on the “Last Chance” section of They always have outrageously good deals. Most of the shoes there now are $25 each! SO check that out if you haven’t. Just click Shop and then under the Sale category, click Last Chance. I’ve got my eye on the bleached denim and the garden sequins ones.
