Canvas shoes go great with almost any outfit and any occasion you can think of and when you think of canvas shoes, there’s really only one name that comes to mind instantly. Taking a little inspiration from the Couponbox article on 100 years of Converse All Stars, here are a few reasons every man should own a pair.
Converse Go with Anyone and Any Outfit
Yes, nearly everyone has them and there’s a reason for that. A simple pair of solid-colored Converse All Stars are effortlessly casual, signify stylish and can be worn during the day or at night and still make your outfit look on point.
Converse are such a multi-function shoe and are truly underrated. Some may look over them because they think they are only meant for certain people and that’s ridiculous. They are 100 years old! That means the style transcends age limits and fashion fads to be accepted by all generations from all walks of life.
Converse Are Comfortable Shoes
Unlike other types of shoe, there is no need to “break them in.” Converse do not need to be worn for a month until you stop needing to apply band-aids to your aching feet. Converse are the most comfortable straight-out-of-the-box shoes you will ever encounter. The lightweight fabric made Chucks effortlessly comfortable, but after Nike took over the reins and launched the Chuck II, you now have the option to supersize your comfort levels.
The Chuck II uses Lunarlon foam technology that distributes more evenly the force of impact, meaning you can strut all day without experiencing pain in the pressure points of your feet.
You Can Get Converse in Literally Any Color, Style, or Design You Wish
Whether you are punk-rock, athletic or geeky, there is a pair of Converse for you. The simple fabric design means there are oodles of ways to customize your Chucks and make them unique to your style. You can employ the professionals at Converse Custom Products or you can do your own thing with whatever materials you can lay your hands on.
There are few opportunities to own a truly only-one-of-its-kind pair of sneakers, but Chucks give you that prospect. The best part is that no matter how old and tattered your Chucks become, the simplicity of the design means you’ll be able to apply a little effort and spruce them up to be good as new again.
Converse Are Affordable and Last Forever
Considering the brand name and its iconic history, Converse are preposterously cheap. How many products do you own from a brand that’s 100 years old and steeped in sporting and cultural history? The celebrities who have owned and loved their Chucks are also ridiculous. We’re talking James Dean, The Ramones, Guns N’ Roses, Kurt Cobain and a whole host of today’s celebrities from Hugh Jackman to Justin Bieber.
Unlike some other brands, Chucks are also durable. Wear them when it’s sunny, muddy, wet and cold, Converse will last through all the seasons. Nobody wants to invest in something that will break or rip in an outrageously short amount of time, but the single transaction you make for a pair of Chucks almost guarantees a long shelf life for your sneakers.
If you have even a vague interest in dressing yourself, you need a pair of Converse Chuck Taylors in your life. Despite the obvious differences in taste we all possess, Chucks appeal to all and they’ve been doing it for 100 years now.
