Founded in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specialising in waterproof overshoes, it wasn't long before Converse started making their own rubber trainers. These iconic sneakers were renamed the “All Star" in 1920, and have since become a popular street style favourite with a cultlike following. Originally designed with basketball in mind, Converse shoes are now worn everywhere – whether to work or for skateboarding – and come in a variety of fun colours and striking styles. The brand has also expanded into clothing for men, women and children, producing everything from T-shirts and coats, to trousers and sportswear.
Our fab ladies’ Converse collection features all your old school favourites. We’ve got Chuck Taylor All Stars in a huge range of colours, from hot pink to classic black, alongside designs with eye-catching prints that are guaranteed to turn heads. Look out for Converse sneakers in both hi and low-top styles, made from hard-wearing canvas and luxurious leather. Casual T-shirts with graphic prints and super plush zip-up hoodies feature in our range too, together with drawstring shorts and padded jackets that’ll keep you snug when it gets chilly.
How to Wear the Classic Chuck Taylors
Pair your classic Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers with a summer dress for the perfect off-duty weekend look. Channel your inner biker chick and team your All Stars with a leather jacket, white tee and skinny black denim jeans, or keep it casual with boyfriend jeans and a low-cut pair of Converse. For a look that's equal parts simple and sophisticated, team a white pair of Chucks with a Breton striped jumper (a fitted white shirt would do the trick too). Finish with a messy top knot and red lipstick, or wear with tousled curls, mirrored aviators and a sleek suede trilby.
