Converse One Star Suede Low Top Style
Converse reintroduces an original court icon with the drop of the Converse One Star Suede Low Top. This model turns up with an entirely velvety suede covering and the trademark star emblem. The toe bumper gets a traditional textured rubber treatment for added protection, while singular piping runs around the sole. Given its low-top structure, this sneaker pairs well with almost any possible casual outfit such as straight or tapered pants, capris, leggings, and shorts.
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.
