Size and fit

The low-top Converse One Star Suede is covered with leather that’s finished with a soft, napped, and quite a fuzzy surface. Unlike polished leather, its all-suede façade is flexible enough. This sneaker comes in men’s sizes that range from 5 to 13 and women’s 5 to 15, with half sizes. Its lace-up closure offers a personalized locked-down fit.

Notable Features

One Star gleams once again with the release of the Converse One Star Suede Low Top. This comeback model which has a striking resemblance to the original shoe is given a fresh look that’s teeming with comfort features. It has kept the time-honored components of the iconic silhouette such as long-lasting rubber outsole, thick and textured toe bumper, and cushioned interior. The distinguishing feature of this edition compared with other One Star varieties is its use of a supple suede finish.

Converse One Star Suede Low Top History

After the high-top Converse All Star made a mark in the professional basketball league in the mid-1920s, another star beamed in the halls of Converse in 1974. It was called the Converse One Star, a low-top all-suede hoops shoe that revealed the so-called One Star emblem.

The noticeable star nestled between two diagonal stripes that slope from the ventilation eyelets down to the edge of the outsole. The gummy bottom is made of microcellular rubber pores that intended to provide additional stability to the foot in motion.

Over the years Converse has released hundreds of designs, prints, and colors of the One Star. The canvas cover literally became a medium of expression when it was reissued in the 1990s. At that time, the design was instantly embraced by punk rock groups, ravers, and even Southbank London skate riders. Soon enough it became a mainstay style in the skateboarding communities with the use of hairy and velvety suede.

Eventually, the versatility of the One Star low top tapped different genres, putting on the shelves some of the famous special editions which include themes such as DC Comics, The Simpsons, The Clash, Super Mario Brothers, to name a few.
