Looks like there are more canvass sneaker styles to come from the Converse collaboration with Finnish design house Marimekko, and this one includes “the most famous Marimekko Marimekko print of all time, the Unikko [poppy] design, originally from 1964 by Maija Isola, to which her daughter Kristina Isola has created a new coloring and scale for the Converse shoes.” Look for this to hit retail June 23rd.

Converse Prom Sneakers

ConverseProm1 Converse Prom Sneakers

A cute idea whose time is long past due–sneakers for prom. We’ve been harping on this for a while, but for women in their teens and twenties (and thirties, forties and up if they’re on the progressive side), sneakers are a part of their fashion wardrobe. And it’s funny, too, as much as we feature sky-high heels (see previous post!), I’ve been noticing lately in my travels around New York that one of the defining characteristics of younger women is that they do not wear much in the way of heels. Tons of military boots, canvas lace-ups and flats, but not much past half an inch. Via Glamour.

chuckswinner Converse Chucks Contest: We Have a Winner!

We asked readers last week to send in images of themselves in a pair of Chucks to win a free pair from the Converse Rock ‘n’ Roll series (available at Journeys). We had a very tough time deciding between the final two, but we had to give it to Kimberly, who had the moxie/style to pair pearls and a formal dress with customized Chucks (with a call out to our very own Brooklyn no less)! Congrats Kimberly–you rock!

Converse Chucks: Rock ‘n’ Roll Aint Dead

16 October 2008, 20.39 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Music, Sneakers | No comments »

This whole trend of icnoic rock bands as a hot fashion graphic flew right by me and I didn’t even realize its existence until my vist to Magic in August. It still has me confused to be honest, but okay. Are people that fed up with rap music or is it just the yearning for days of hedonism gone by? Looking back with longing at the years when people were getting laid on the reg and folks got sloppy in bars rather than wrapped further tight in Starbucks? No idea, but I do think these Chucks riffing on sexy motherfather Jim Morrison are cute:

There’s more rock bands in the collection, including Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, The Who, Ozzy and Pink Floyd, which you can all buy at Journeys in November.

There’s a pair of lows from the same series on the other side that I like even more…
