It’s February, and what does that mean? Spring items arriving in stores daily! Hooray!
Last week, thanks to MB Communications, I got to check out what Converse has to offer this Spring. And I definitely liked what I saw. The main attractions for me was the Marimekko collaboration collection. Bright colors, fun original patterns from the 1960s - I’m officially in love. The Marimekko collab included a new, more feminine Chuck Taylor All Star PJ silhouette, as well as the Jack Purcell Helen, All Star, and Oxford silhouettes. These shoes are perfect for some summer lovin’, and should be in stores now.
Another amazing collaboration for Spring 2011 is Converse x DC Comics. I seriously wished I saw these pairs in stores much earlier, as they would’ve made a perfect Valentine’s Day gift! Most shoes from this collection feature both good and evil characters from the iconic comic books, including Batman, Joker, Wonder Woman (yeah!), Superman, and many others. There are so many cool pairs in that collab, but I am pretty sure they’ll sell like hot cakes. So if you or someone you love is a comic book fan, make sure to track down a pair soon, before they are all gone.
All in all, I was very impressed with what I saw. Apart from the main collabs presented, there were studded Chucks, camo Chucks, woven leather Varvatos Chucks, Jack Purcell Chucksthat James Dean used to wear, and so many more…I wish I could justify buying them all, and if I wasn’t such a high heel girl, I totally would. In the meantime, I think I know what I’m getting for le boyfriend’s birthday!
