Converse shoes are a long-standing wardrobe staple – and for good reason! A subcultural icon, Converse sneakers have dominated the style sections of sports, music, streetwear, and more for years. People just can’t get enough of them, and neither can we at West Brothers! With the legendary brand in stock right here in Australia and free shipping for orders over $99, the question isn’t whether to rock Converse or not – it’s how!
Why Do People Wear Converse Shoes?
The real question is, why wouldn’t people wear Converse shoes? These staple sneakers have been around in evolving fashions for over a century. The term “all-star” is now synonymous with the skate-born brand, as the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker has clad the feet of boarders and non-boarders alike since the 1970s.
It’s easy to see why the world loves Converse sneakers, as their clean design and comfort set them apart from competitor brands. Converse can be worn all day and night and don’t need to be broken in. Imagine that – shoes that are wearable without suffering through a week-long pain period!
There are seemingly infinite reasons why people wear Converse sneakers, from the high level of comfort they offer to the versatility of the shoe to wanting to stay on trend. Converse is truly a brand like no other!
What is So Special About Converse Shoes?
From the brand’s rich and longstanding history to the various industries, style sections and cultural arenas in which these sneakers have shined, arguably what makes Converse so special (and what has kept them relevant for so long) is the versatility of the shoes.
Whether you’re doing your Sunday grocery shop, heading into the office, or setting off for a night out on the town, Converse suit any occasion. Many people even opt to get married in Converse, ditching traditionally uncomfortable heels or loafers for the street style favourite.
Also, a pair of Converse will last. There’s nothing worse than investing in an everyday-wear pair of shoes and having them fall apart on you far too soon. Converse sneakers were originally designed (and still are) as shoes for skateboarding. Therefore, they are built to hold up against wear and tear presented by the tough asphalt and concrete of the streets.
What Are the Most Iconic Converse Shoes
Without a doubt, Chuck Taylor All Stars are the design that really put – and have kept – Converse sneakers on the map. Not many shoe brands have stayed so relevant over the years, and the same goes for individual design styles.
Fashion trends change rapidly, yet Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Stars have remained consistently cool. The timeless style of these sneakers, whether as low-tops, high-tops, or in any of the various available colourways, was designed for the basketball court and has stood the test of time. Named after its creator (a legendary basketball player), the Chuck Taylor shoe is still a Converse top-seller. Converse has even collaborated with high fashion brands over the years, adorning Commes des Garçon and Fear of God ESSENTIALS logos on the sides of Chuck Taylors.
Are You Not Supposed to Wear Socks With Converse Sneakers?
While a no-sock look with a pair of Converse low-tops can present itself as clean and cool, we recommend wearing socks with your Converse. While it's more comfortable, pairing socks with your Converse is also a fun way to accessorise and accentuate your sneakers.
If it’s a no-sock look you’re going for, try pairing low tops with no-show socks, otherwise known as invisible or low-profile socks. Ankle socks also work well with low-tops, only showing an edge of whatever plain, bright, or patterned style they’re boasting.
On the other hand, wearing a pair of high socks will be most comfortable and best complement your high tops. Opt for a colour, pattern or style that will bring out the unique personality of your pair of shoes. Maybe you want to add contrast to your classic black Chuck Taylors with a rainbow-printed pair of socks, or keep it monochrome with a textured white pair? Converse even has its branded high-socks, which we stock at West Brothers right here in Australia. The choice is up to you, so have fun with it!
Why Do Converse Shoes Have Holes on the Sides?
Have you ever wondered what those extra holes are in Converse? An iconic detail of the shoe, these little holes actually do serve a purpose – to provide ventilation for your feet. The holes allow air to enter the shoes and prevent your feet from getting overly sweaty.
Another reason for the holes is to allow users to get creative with their laces. So if you’re feeling wild, those holes are there for you to change up the way you lace up.
What Style of Converse is the Most Comfortable?
Any and all Converse are comfortable – it’s a big reason why the shoe is so popular! The shoe is intended to be worn while skateboarding or being athletic in some way, and offer a snug fit with ample toe space. They’re also known to be comfortable for wider feet.
Which Colour of Converse Sneakers Should I Get?
This totally depends on you and the look you’re going for! While you can never go wrong with a classic black or white pair of Converse, the shoes also come in various gorgeous colours. Think all the colours of the rainbow, and then add more shades and hues – Converse has it. At West Brothers, we stock various styles and colours of Converse, including booties for infants.
How to Wear Jeans With Converse Shoes
Denim and Converse go together like bread and butter. There’s really no wrong way to pair your Converse with a pair of jeans, but we do have a few suggestions to offer up for consideration.
If you lean towards skinny jeans, low tops are your best bet. With the tight, tailored fit around the ankle, opting for a low top allows some breathing room and shows just a bit of your ankle and/or sock. However, for wider-fit denim, high tops will help you achieve a relaxed, effortless look. You can even tuck the hems of your jeans into the high tops to show off the side patches or allow a bootcut fit to hang over and give emphasis to the toe of the shoe.
There’s really no reason not to rock Converse! Add a pair of these footwear classics to your closet today with West Brothers. For any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team!
