The devil may wear Prada but cool people wear Converse. There is something so undeniably cool about converse sneakers, the design is so simple and effortless but what the brand has done with this shoe is amazing. Founded in 1908 Converse All Star trainers have been around for about 103 years which is quite a legacy. There have been endless variations on design, height, materials, colours, fabrics and surface patterns which makes the brand interesting and keeps the shoe concept fresh.
