120 Kickass Converse Designs

From Monstrous High Tops to Solar Shoe Lights

— September 26, 2010 — Fashion
From decade to decade, no one can get enough of these infamous white-tipped Converse designs. Although Chucks have changed in style over the years, they remain staple items in many wardrobes.

Along with the change, several of these Converse designs have been refashioned to serve worldwide shoe shoppers. Adding bling to sneakers or becoming a part of Product (RED), charitable shoes and limited edition kicks are only a fraction of what these classically modern shoes can bring to the streets.
