Converse is one of the few shoe brands that is really timeless and transcends generations and trends. The Chuck Taylor you wear today was the same Converse style your parents wore, and probably still wear today. The All-Star logo never fails to shine and is as versatile as ever.
Converse recently unveiled in Bacolod their Spring Summer 2017 collection featuring the classic Chuck Taylor in leather, gum rubber sole, and the Counter Climate Chuck in Lycra. Whatever your style is, there will surely be a Converse fit for you whether you’re a Millennial or a Generation X Tita like me.
