What Are the Different Types of Converse Shoes?
Converse is an American sneaker brand that is worn by people of all ages and genders around the world. The company, which is best known for the classic Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers, has been owned by Nike since 2003.
But Chuck Taylor sneakers aren’t the only type of shoe that Converse make, there are so many types of converse shoes available. They often also come in a range of different colors and sizes, making Converse a great choice for stylish shoes.
The Classic Chuck Taylor All Stars
Converse styles don’t get much cooler than the classic Chuck Taylor sneakers. These shoes are made of canvas material and have a rubber sole. They are available as low and high-tops.
The classic Chuck Taylor high-tops can be worn in a variety of different ways. For example, some prefer to lace their shoelaces all the way up, whilst other people prefer to fold down the tongue and opt for a laid-back look. If you’re wearing jeans, you can either tuck them into your high-tops or wear them over your sneakers. For girls wearing Converse, there is an unlimited amount of style and you do really get to choose your own look with these iconic shoes.
There are also other types of Chuck Taylor Converse shoes, including knee-high sneakers, mid-length sneakers, and flip flops.
A lot of the classic Chuck Taylor shoes have thick white rubber soles, however, you can find Converse shoes that also have slim soles or even wedges, to help you add some height.
The Chuck Taylor line features classic colors, such as white, beige, black, navy blue, charcoal gray, red, and pink. You can also find a monochrome black Chuck Taylor sneaker that features black rubber soles, patch, and shoelaces.
Chuck Taylors are also available in other colors, these are known as the fresh color line. Also, there is Chuck Taylor Washed Canvas design, which is canvas shoes where the color has been distressed to give them a vintage feel.
Classic Color Slips
Converse has a range called the classic color slips, which are Chuck Taylor slip-ons. These low-top sneakers come without shoelaces and are designed for ease of slipping on and off. These slip-on Chuck Taylor sneakers come in black, navy, natural, and gray. The color slips are ideal for summer and can be accompanied with a dress, trousers, skirt, or anything in between.
You might prefer to go for a sneaker that is a little more extravagant, such as the Graphic Collection. These printed canvas sneakers offer an alternative to the classic All Stars. These sneakers have the same structure and All Star patch but feature graphic styles on the high-top section.
Some examples of graphic styles include the American Flag, pop art, and rainbow styles. Converse has also partnered with artists, musicians, and designers to create graphic styles. For example, DC Comics, Andy Warhol, The Simpsons, and Black Sabbath.
The Graphic Collection can be worn similarly to the classic Chuck Taylor sneakers, with them laced up to the top, or with the tongue down.
If you want a Converse shoe that isn’t canvas then you’re in luck, as they also have some sneakers which are made with leather. The main leather styles they offer are white and black monochrome.
The rest of the sneakers, such as the rubber sole, toecap, and the shoelaces, are the same color as the leather. You can get the Leather Collection in both low and high-tops, so you can be sure that they’ll complement your outfit.
Jack Purcell Collection
If you’re looking for a higher-end version of the low top Chuck Taylors then you might want to consider the Jack Purcell sneakers. The line of the shoes was named after the champion badminton play Jack Purcell.
These shoes have a thicker sole and have a raised toe cap. The Jack Purcell Collection is often made from wool or leather and as such offers more support than the classic Chuck Taylor sneakers. The sole also has a comfortable footbed, so if you struggle to find shoes that offer your feet the right kind of comfort, these stylish Converse might be for you.
