User reviews:

Maintaining the original's silhouette, this kick offers a recognizable fit that has been time-tested since the 70s. A cushioned footbed provides enhanced in-step comfort ideal for all-day wear. This unisex shoe is offered in men's sizes that range from 4 to 12. Ladies who want to cop should go two sizes down from their standard shoe size.

A number of One Star wearers disclosed that the shoe runs bigger than regular shoe sizes, and recommended to go half a size down from your normal size.

Doused in Tyler's dynamic imagination, the Converse One Star x Golf Le Fleur's bright palette and unique details display a daring confidence and youthful spirit that could amp up any ensemble. Backed up with a rebellious heritage and an unparalleled design, the shoe now aims to provide individualism and inclusion at the same time by promoting being true to one's self without fear of judgment.

Consumers were seen pairing these fun kicks with cropped, wide hemmed pants and polo shirts and bucket hats for vintage-inspired outfits.  It could also be dressed in any casual staple like jeans, shorts, or joggers styled in any way that would highlight your personal style.

Tyler's touches are what set the Converse One Star x Golf Le Fleur apart from its predecessor. The shoe's upper is crafted from hairy suede and finished in unique, vibrant pastel hues. The first two releases feature a contrasting white stitch in the shape of a flower around the Star logo, but in the third release, a fresh floral update is seen gracing the shoe's sides.

On the second release, the shoe featured several distinct details embroidered bee on the heel counter, an art illustrated footbed, a message on the midsole, and logo prints on the outsole. Finally, all three releases have debossed Golf Le Fleur and Converse logos on the tongue.

While the One Star is not as famous as the Chucks, it has a history as exciting as its sibling. The shoe's story started in the late 60s when the hoop courts began to gravitate towards low-top basketball sneakers, and Converse caught the wave. The brand released a low-top All Star, which eventually became the Converse One Star that was officially introduced in 1974. Apparently, it didn't do well as a court kick and was removed from the shelves indefinitely after only a year since its release.

In 1993, the One Star came back and it was perfectly timed as the 90's grunge movement was at its peak and skateboarding was pushing its way into the youth's radar. The One Star was marketed outside mainstream's eye and was regularly seen on the right people such as Kurt Cobain and Guy Mariano, which made the scene kids take notice and made a reputation as an anti-establishment kick.

In 2017, with the resurgence of 90s trends, the One Star is back in the sneaker arena. Its tough rep along with a strong countercultural following exudes a raw energy that resonated well with today's DIY and expressive youth. The shoe also experienced a boost in sales and popularity thanks in part to Tyler, the Creator - a rapper, record producer, designer, and owner of brand Golf Le Fleur. Tyler and Converse are in a continuing collaboration and has so far released four versions of the One Star called the Converse One Star x Golf Le Fleur.

  • The shoe comes with a hemp canvas dust bag.
  • The second release’s secret message on the midsole reads, “Don’t let ‘em kill your flowers, water your garden and stunt.”
