Simple-but-effective shoes based on the design manufactured by Converse in around 1915 and promoted and worn by Basketball player Chuck Taylor.

They're now iconic shoes which can be worn in a casual and smart-casual settings; the classic converse is a high top shoe made of canvas with a rubber base and toe pad; along with many lace holes meaning they can be made unisex due to their flexibility. They also come in low-top with or without a converse logo(the logo on low-tops is different as the ankle-logo cannot fit on the shoe).

Despite many variations in colour and design; they are always identifiable by their simple canvas/rubber design. And they're awesome.

Converse has been around for a long time. It's a sneaker that used to be worn by people who actually have a unique sense of style, but now they are too...popular. They come in hightops in lowtops, but everyone seems to wear the lowtops, and the hightops are becoming harder to find now.
For three years I used to wear pink Converse hightops, and I was the only one who wore them in school, but as soon as I stopped wearing them, Converse actually became popular. So, now I don't really wear Converse as much.

The best shoes ever thought of! Can be worn practically whenever. Some people consider them formal wear. They were all the craze YEARS ago but now they've made a comeback are extremely popular.

are converse good as school shoes? i was once asked by a parent.

the answer is a definite definite yes.

not only are they smart looking, but they are very durable.
the body of the shoe bends to the shape of your foot.
also, the manmade rubber-like soles are hardwearing.

In relation to school dress, a pair of monochromatic sneakers are the perfect solution to a moaning fashion-conscious teenager and a worrying parent. If you choose the monochromatic converse, it fits with most school dress codes and are also very fashion-forward.

so, all in all, converse are the perfect solution for school shoes.
