Converse Skateboarding continues to impress with its simple if elegant takes on skate sneakers and this latest run offers just the right mix of vibrant and subdued to echo today’s fashion trends. Let’s start with the model that riders have been wearing before most of today’s skate sneaker companies existed, the Chuck Taylor as CTS Mid in a black canvas getup whose red and blue accents add a blacklit feel. It’s as if that kick’s a long night of partying and then the Anthony Pappalardo Pro Model comes in with a gold suede construction that finds its sunny shade applied as accent hits on a lowtop for Jeff Trepasso. Trepasso also gets a vivid purple suede pair to round out the set, all of which just became available at Michigan’s Premier.
