All Star Nation

"Throughout the years, Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars made a shift from athletic sportswear to casual footwear. Originally an elite basketball shoe, the Chuck Taylor All Star evolved into the shoe of choice for many subcultures. The shoes were popular among many groups throughout the decades including greasers, athletes, punks, grunge rockers, alternative rockers, surfers, rappers, Time Lords and skaters. Today, Chuck Taylor All Stars are worn by countless people from all cultures and styles and the shoe continues to be an iconic style marker." -
This is photograph taken by Tapez, a photographer friend of mine, for my stylist boy Peter Parker's ALL STAR NATION photoshoot. We shot at the Shesha store in Rosebank and as you can see, the entire wall behind me was full of all types of Converse footwear. You cannot out-cool "COOL" okes, with that said, how COOL are Converse All Star sneakers? Well, irrespective of all trendy footwear platforms fashion has to offer every now and then, the Converse remains the best sneaker of all time! Brand new or worn out, this is one sneaker people have not minded rocking under any circumstance. A timeless wardrobe must-have since 1908...
