Wardrobe Essentials: Converse

What are the classic items that you can add to your wardrobe that will never go out of style?  What are timeless pieces that add style and class after fashion fades?  That’s right…it’s time to talk about another essential piece you should add to your wardrobe.  Converse!

Converse was founded in 1908 by Marquis Mills Converse.  The following quote can be found in the 1913 Converse catalog: “Our company was organized in 1908 fully believing that there was an earnest demand from the retail shoe dealer for a rubber shoe company that would be independent enough not to follow every other company in every thing they do.”  Wow-if only Marquis knew then that his shoes would become a household name!

You can buy Converse at the store in all kinds of shapes and styles or create your own original Converse online.  You can count on Converse being around for a LONG time, so these are definitely worth the money.  They are well made and will last until you wear them out.  They are a favorite of celebrities, students, fashionistas and everyone in between.  These are the rare fashion find where you look good AND feel good!

Here are some different Converse styles for you to drool over!  Just click on the picture for more details!
