Size and fit

Men’s sizes are offered for the Converse El Distrito. The shoe has a low-top collar that does not restrict the movement of the ankle. It’s also padded for comfort, along with the tongue. A canvas upper provides sturdy support for the foot, while flat laces at the front keep the fit adjustable and secure.   

Converse El Distrito Style

Low profile is the way to go with the low-top Converse El Distrito. Its minimal styling can be mixed and matched with a variety of colors or patterns, yet it can also be paired with a laidback outfit for any casual day. Shorts, pants, and t-shirts are enough to create a trendy urban appeal with these kicks. They are great for the summer or spring when they can be worn with light clothes.

These shoes were designed with street style in mind, so they go well with any get-up. The versatile flair is perfect for creating different looks with staple pieces such as shirts, jackets, sweaters, and hoodies. Their unfussy look and basic colorways can also be dressed up or down for a night out, a party, or any other event. Adding a pop of color to one’s clothing is the Star Chevron symbol, which makes the shoe distinctive.

Notable Features

The Converse El Distrito is a canvas shoe with a minimalist appeal. It has the Star Chevron logo on the sides, the single design feature which dominates the upper and gives it a classy touch. More branding is found on the tongue and heel tab, where the Converse All-Star logo can be seen. Continuing the simple appeal is the distinctive round toe design along with monochrome stitch detail all over the upper.

Converse El Distrito History

Converse has penetrated popular culture on a grand scale. It is worn by teenagers, adults, and kids, as well as musicians, actors and actresses, and other well-known figures. The classic silhouettes of the brand’s shoes are much imitated and outright copied, yet Converse retains its spot as a street style staple.

It all started when Marquis Mills Converse launched the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in 1908. Years later, the brand introduced a basketball shoe named Converse All-Star, later renamed Chuck Taylor in honor of the player who endorsed it and made it famous. Another iconic design is the Jack Purcell with its trademark blue smile along the toe. Converse had bought the rights of producing the shoe from B.F. Goodrich in the 1970s.

The company went through a slump for a while due to the rise of many other footwear brands but was able to recover when Nike bought it in 2003. Meanwhile, the brand persisted in creating original styles that were instant modern classics. In the 1970s, Converse employee Jim Labadini created the Star Chevron logo, which pointed the move forward for the company at a time of tight competition among shoe brands.

This insignia adorns the side of the Converse El Distrito, a fashion-forward sneaker that marks the brand’s turn towards simple yet progressive design. The shoe has all the comforts one would expect from the brand, yet it is much improved from other Converse sneakers due to its added features. It's a sneaker made for walking the streets in laidback modern style.    

Additional Info

  • Soft lining is used along the shoe for comfort.
