We’re going to take an educated guess and wager that you have a pair of Converse sneakers in your closet right now (if they aren’t already on your feet.) Even if you don’t, it’s safe to assume you’ve owned a pair at one time or another.
Converse has been around for longer than we’ve been alive—since 1908 to be exact—and since then, they’ve transcended “types,” having shown up on rappers, punks, basketball players, rebels, grunge-sters, and fashion lovers. They’re one of the few sneakers styles that look just as rad when they’re brand new or have years of wear and tear, and just as cool on you, your dad, and your grandpa.
Obviously, you know good ol’ Chuck Taylors look killer with jeans and other casual gear, but they also look amazing with dressy pieces, too. To prove just how versatile they are, we’ve rounded up 25 outfits that will inspire you.
