CONVERSE FRESH COLORS: FROM THE RUNWAY TO YOUR FEET!
Just in time for fall, a new line of Chuck Taylor All Stars has arrived. The big shoe brand’s All Star Fresh Colors hi-top and lo-top sneakers have gracefully gone from the runway to our feet, where they will stay until we get bored of one color and need to move onto the next.
The Converse Fresh Colors lineup features the same Chuck Taylor All Star hi-top sneakers you’ve always loved, just in new, slick colors that bring a new variety of expressions to the footwear’s iconic silhouette.
We’ve hand-picked our favourite Fresh Colors from the new line and are loving the fact that despite their distinctive colors, they pair up rather nicely with a lot of stuff.
Pair your pair of Converse Chuck Taylor Low Tops in Gloom Green with light jeans, dark jeans, slacks, khakis, a long skirt, a short skirt, and even leggings or jeggings.
We believe Gloom Green made it from the runway to the public because it’s refreshingly new. It’s not a shade of green we are used to seeing. It’s definitely not army green, or forest green, or lime green, or mint green. Really, what actual green thing does this color remind you of? The Incredible Hulk? No. Grass? No. Kermit the Frog? Nope. This shade of green is in a class all its own, and we can’t even begin to guess where the name “Gloom” came from.
This is the first green Gloom we’ve ever heard of. So, if you get a pair, the only green thing this shade is going to remind you of is the envy of your friends who spent their pay cheques on something else.
If you’re looking to make more of a statement, check out the Converse Chuck Taylor Hi Top Eggplant Peel.
While the name Eggplant Peel suggests traditional purple, these shoes are anything but traditional-looking. We have a soft spot for purple, especially unisex purple like this deep shade. These Chuck Taylors are great because they look classy, but feel modern.
Like the Glooms, they can be paired with a lot of clothes you already own and are the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe because they are dark and moody—a little like the weather in Victoria at this time of year. Their darkness also means they won’t constantly show the rain and mud that’s somewhat unavoidable in the winter, depending what you’re into.
Purple is no longer a color reserved for royalty, yet it still suggests luxury. The publishers of Digital Skratch say the color combines the “stability of blue and the energy of red” and that it “symbolizes mystery, magic, power and luxury.” So why would purple ever suggest royalty? Color psychology says that purple, which is less common to exist naturally in nature, used to require special resources to create the color, and only the wealthy, noble people could afford purple clothes. Neat!
Along with its new Fresh Colors lineup for grownups, Converse also offers the same lineup in Toddler versions. The Converse Chuck Taylor Toddler Low Top Blue Sky is among our best-selling shoes for kids.
This new take on a traditional color — it’s just a tad lighter than your average “baby blue”— is sure to make one heck of a stylish toddler out of your offspring.
The study of color psychology says blue is the most popular color in the world, and is the color most preferred by men, so does that mean there are more men in the world than woman, or are we getting off topic again? Either way, these sky blue toddler Converses are going to look great on your little guy or girl.
Liking this color for you? We’ve got you covered with the adult version of the Converse Chuck Taylor Hi Top Blue Sky.
