Converse: Nice kicks

by Elise Diamantini

Converse was inspired by rock and roll for fall 2013. From studs and staples to zippers and graphics—styles were heavily embellished in both the All Star and Premium Converse collections. Retails range from $80 to $110 for All Star and $150 to $250 for Premium. Another standout under the Converse umbrella is the Jack Purcell collection. Targeting the tech guy who likely wears suits with sneakers (around $80 retail); this season washed, colorful styles and camouflage prints are key.
