Converse All-Stars Lo-Top Clear

Converse All-Stars, or Chuck Taylor All-Stars, also referred to as "Chucks" were first made in 1917, but they didn't become particularly popular until basketball player Chuck Taylor adopted them as his preferred shoes, becoming what may be America's first player-endorser. The All-Stars quickly became indelibly linked with an emerging cultural shift that combined fashion & youth culture with rebellious figures of music & film who came to define a new casual style for generations to come. In the years since, the All-Stars has been produced in countless variety of colours, styles & material, making it undoubtedly the most successful shoe in history. (By the turn of the 21st century, over 750 million pairs had been sold worldwide!) As Converse celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, the All-Stars continues to serve as the brand's flagship, now an enduring sportwear icon.
An unexpected twist to the classic, the Converse All-Stars Lo-Top Clear features a transparent upper & tongue with a white outsole. They will match any outfit, can be customised to whichever colour your socks are, & may elicit some envy from friends.
