Fans love Converse because they can be worn as high tops or low tops and a few of their colors have become warm weather staples. Whether you prefer your Converse in black, red or white—those specific shades have been cemented as classics. According to Esquire, the sneaker continues to evolve:
Chucks have come a long way since my dad was wearing them on the court as an actual basketball sneaker. In 2013 Converse released a sturdier, more cushioned version of the iconic silhouette—the Chuck 70—that only costs about $30 more than the original. Still, the OGs hang tough both in their versatility and quality.
"Got my Vans on but they look like sneakers." The shoe is so iconic that the brand has a song. Vans were once known as a skater shoe but have evolved to much more. The brand recently announced they will be dedicating a shoe to the late Davie Bowie that will reference his lustrous career. According to CNN:
One shoe, designed in tribute to his 1969 single "Space Oddity," mirrors the colors and circular shapes from the cover of his second album, "David Bowie," on which the single appeared. Another model mimics the checkerboard coat Bowie wore on the "Hunky Dory" album cover.
