DALLAS, Jan 12, 2009 / FW/ — Nicknamed ‘America’s Original Sports Company’, Converse was established in 1908 and built its reputation with its legendary shoes such as the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe, the Jack Purcell shoe and the One Star shoe.
For Spring 2009, Converse One Star proposed sporty vintage aesthetics for its men, women and kids footwear that continues its rich heritage.
The One Star women’s footwear collection offers a variety of affordable styles from preppy to trend-forward and everything in between. The classic Ox sneaker, with or without laces, is a timeless option available in black, brown, white or pink. Twill wedges in navy or brown add height and finesse to any warm weather getup, while T-Straps, a new silhouette this season, are offered in silver metallic to add a little glam.
The spring One Star footwear collection for men includes the classic-style, two-tone soccer shoe, as well as the black and brown skate shoe, an updated favorite that adds fashionable appeal to any look. The timeless Ox sneaker, available in black and blue, reflects the One Star heritage, while the high-top style in black remains a key silhouette.
The children’s One Star footwear collection is as fashionable as it is adorable, including sizes for kids and toddlers that are low-priced, fun and comfortable to wear. Girls reveal their inner tomboy with the Ox sneaker in black or show-off their girly side in pink, floral print or sparkle star print. Boys opt for a camo-print Ox sneaker or a blue soccer oxford that proves kids are never too young for vintage style.
Converse One Star Shoes Spring 2009 collection is avaialable at Target stores nationwide and online at www.target.com beginning January 2009.
