I have a bone to pick with Converse.
Every season, I’m excited to attend the media preview for the upcoming collection, and every season I come out with quite a wish list. The only problem? It’s the men’s shoes I keep falling head over heels for and they, quite tragically, don’t come in my size. The designs from the ongoing John Varvatos x Converse collaboration are always standouts – I’m dying for a pair of embellished leather high tops. Can we make this happen, pretty please?
Thankfully, there are plenty of other styles to keep my feet occupied until the day I get my hands on some John Varvatos. The special edition DC Comics Chuck Taylors are favourites; we’re big Superman fans here at The Backseat Stylers and are building a mini collection of Superman Cons to fit everyone from the baby to the Mister to yours truly. I’m happy to see there are new styles coming for Spring, with illustrations straight out of the comic books. And, of course, the basic Converse shoe in vibrant pops of colour are always weekend essentials.
There are a lot of fun styles hitting stores soon, including more Jack Purcell this season, as well as collaborations with Marimekko and Gorillaz. What’s on your list, for you and your Mister?
