Converse stretches its low-top lineup by modifying the vintage silhouette with fresh motifs as seen in the One Star Metallic Love low-top edition.

Converse encourages you to wear your heart on your sole with the low-top Converse One Star Metallic Love. Unlike the usual hairy suede finish seen in other One Star renditions, this version is crafted with a smooth and velvety suede upper. It’s suitable for those who love retro sneakers in a minimalistic form.
The lace takes on the same color as the entire upper making this a monochromatic shoe. Some of the available shades are reddish Rhubard/ Field Orange/ Egret, off white Egret/ Egret/ Rhubarb, greyish blue Celestial Teal/ Celestial Teal, and Black/ Sedona Red/ Egret. Pairing this up with colored pants may be tricky, but the safest way to go is to choose neutrals, blue jeans, or contrasting colored track pants or capris.
What clearly stands out in the One Star Metallic Love Low Top Converse sneaker is its supple and velvety cover which makes it appear classier than the hairy suede counterparts. Save for the stars on the side panels, this old-school sneaker appears minimalistic. Offering a sleeker look to this kick is monochromatic upper. Subtle details also give this kick a punch of style like metallic stitching around the star emblem and the printed heart pattern on the outsole.
Converse puts a lovely twist to one of its most recognizable silhouettes and came up with the Converse One Star Metallic Love Low Top. This reinterpreted version of the One Star, a shoe which was birthed on the basketball courts, received a velvety, suede exterior and decked with hearts on the flipside fitted for everyday streetwear styling.
The One Star isn’t a new style introduced by Converse but a silhouette that’s been around since the mid-1970s. After the high-top Converse All Star created a niche in the American basketball leagues during the mid-‘20s, Converse created another star in low profile much to the delight of amateur dribblers and professional ballers. But the popularity of the low-top Converse One Star didn’t end in the court as it eventually found its street cred during the 1990s, making it one of the ubiquitous styles for skateboarding and everyday wear.
