Rockin’ the Trends with Converse

Converse – classic footwear recognized all over the world.  Known to many as Chuck Taylor All-Stars, Converse All-Stars, Chucks, and Cons, these popular sneakers have a colourful history, much like the assortment of kicks you can find at Converse London.

More than just sneakers, Converse London mixes and matches with every colour imaginable to bring a rainbow of red, purple, yellow, black, green, orange, striped, khaki and multi-coloured.  That’s just a few of many.  If you can think it – Converse has it.

So where do you fit in the world of Chucks?  Are you a knee-high Chuck, a sequin Chuck, a leather, shiny or Rubik’s cube Chuck?

How do you make a shoe different from all others, especially if it’s basically the same design?  With unlimited possibilities and endless options for kids, such as Barbie or Dora the Explorer sneakers, why must adults and young people, at some point, give up their zest for colour and creativity, and turn to the drabs browns and beiges of the world?  This doesn’t have to be so!

With the vibrant music scene of London having its print on footwear, so should you.  Your favourite bands can be found on your favourite sneakers from Converse.  And it’s not confined to just London.  Australian and American bands can be found on your sneaks as well as your i-Pod.

Rocker icon, Ozzy Osbourne, was immortalized on a pair of Chucks in cartoon form.   Previously, Black Sabbath was also front stage on a pair of Chucks.  The English psychedelic band, Pink Floyd, find more popularity with Converse sneakers featuring the well-known cover of their hit album Dark Side of the Moon. Various AC/DC images can be seen on Chucks, with one particularly humorous, showing a somewhat crazed Angus Young and along the bottom side, a caption that reads “Lock up your daughters”.  America’s heavy metal band, Metallica, have numerous designs – some with just the band logo, others with the legendary flaming skull.

The most recent design to rock the Converse world is London Calling by The Clash.  Thirty years after the album was released and fans can still find The Clash etched on their soles, literally.  Other designs include a military style as well as the skull and crossbones logo.

So next time you’re shopping for something a little different, but not too different, check out Converse London and find out what kind of Chuck you are.
