The Voice of Wakefield High School


The shoe that has been around for over a century and is still a classic: Converse. With a style to fit everyone’s wants and needs, Converse has become a staple in many teen shoe collection. Starting off as basketball shoes in 1917, Converse has become a fashion trend and is here to stay another century more. 

Converse has come a long way in a fashion sense. A decade ago, you might find teens wearing Converse almost up to their knees, but they have evolved since then. Now, the style that is in high praise is the regular, Chuck 70s, and platforms. The shoe is simple to style and very versatile, which is most likely the selling point for many people. They are able to mix and match the shoe with all kinds of outfits. Keep it casual with a pair of jeans or leggings and a t-shirt, or dress it up with a nice pair of pants, or even a dress. There really isn’t a wrong way to go when it comes to this shoe, it’s a wardrobe staple!

Another reason Converse is so popular is its ever-changing styles and durability. While there is the original Chuck Taylors, there is also low top, slip-on, boots, platforms and even more. If the classic high tops aren’t your jam, there are many other options. Recently, platforms have become a popular style. Maybe their growth in popularity is because there was a need for something new, but whatever it is, lots of people are here for it. 

Converse has shown over and over that they will be the staple in many people’s closets, which is great news for anyone with Converse. They will always put an outfit together and withstand the test of time.
