Launched in 1974, One Star was put off a year later due to its relative underachievement. Straying from its origins as a shoe constructed for the basketball court, One Star re-emerged later as a favorite amongst the American grunge and skate scene.
Comparatively different from the popular Chuck Taylor All Star, the One Star sets a new benchmark in street style that doesn’t care about clichés, approvals or being celebrated.
It’s not about checking all the boxes or coloring within the lines. It is for celebrating the square peg in a round hole – the fearless and audacious youth who walks defiantly and are unafraid to be different.
In celebration of the latest Converse One Star Spring collection, Converse puts the spotlight on four anti-heroes – Jade Sparkle, Xavier Ong, Nathanael Ng and Germaine Cheong AKA XiaoMei who carry the spirit of individualism and fearless determination of living their dreams.
This season, Converse rolls out a number of unique iterations for those with the same spirit. For those who love soft-pastels, embrace the One Star Peached Canvas and Premium Suede for elevated comfort.
Or make a statement and do it your way with styles such as pinstripes, piping and molded stars where the retro look of the sneaker is reinterpreted.
The Converse One Star Spring 2018 Collection is available at all Converse Stores
