Converse Lucky Star High Top Style
High top sneakers like the Lucky Star High Top from Converse are meant to be seen. Wear a slim- or relaxed-fit pair of pants and don’t be afraid to roll up the legs to show of that vintage patch. Wear a crew-neck shirt or a pullover for your top. This style also pairs well with a well-fitting suit. Women can get away with wearing shorts, skirts, and dresses aside from the usual skinny jeans and tights.
The Converse Lucky Star High Top employs a canvas upper that delivers lightweight and durable protection against the elements. Stitching patterns on the top gives this footgear a vintage vibe. It has medial eyelets that help ventilate the interior of the trainer. A thick vulcanized rubber platform serves as the midsole while durable rubber lines the bottom for protection and traction.
Converse Lucky Star High Top History
The Converse Lucky Star High Top may easily be confused with the Chuck Taylor All Star. Both iterations were intended for basketball use. They also share the same silhouette, toe bumper, and sole technology. However, the patches and brand plates on these models are different. The most striking difference is that the stitching pattern on the Lucky Star High Top is more intricate compared to the All Star.
It was originally released in 1969 and bore the monicker Chuck Taylor Lucky Star. The classic look of the trainer appealed to many sneakerheads which resulted in the re-release of this collection over the years.
