I’ve always been a fan of Converse, so writing this blog was a pleasure. The first pair of Converses I got were a present from my sister in London. She didn’t know my shoe size and didn’t want to ask because it was meant to be a surprise. She could have asked my brother or sister, but realised that she’d have to get them each a pair too!
So what did she do…she guessed my size and guessed wrong! She selected size nine and I’m a seven. I received them with a note that said, “Merry Christmas Ian. Hope you’ll like the present I got you. I didn’t know your size so if they don’t fit give them to your brother then I’ll send you another one soon.” Unwrapping the package, I found (at that time) brand new edition Converse low top sneakers. I was super excited but super sad at the same time because they didn’t fit! Aaaargh! I was so frustrated and honestly, did not want to give them to my brother. So I kept them! Lol. I forced issues with those shoes and how I managed to walk around in them…I don’t know. I just knew they were mine and meant for me alone.
Even as time passed and I buy my own pairs of Converse, I still love them now as much as I did then. I love how they use fresh colors and the variety of prints they introduce each season. Converse has a look that’s sort of rebellious yet still remains classic – honouring their humble beginnings.
I’m wearing a Chuck Taylor All Star perforated leather Oxford Hi Top Sneaker. This is one shoe I can wear all week. It offers the best of Converse – cool, comfortable, and classy.
Grab yourself an original pair of Converse at Westgate or Junction Mall. They currently have a sale of up to 50% off for a specific period. Not only on shoes but their entire collection, which includes tees, hoodies and caps.
