Men's Converse 6-hole lace-up canvas sports shoe. There's no need to introduce the Chuck Taylor All Star, a legendary model created in 1917 and made popular by the famous basketball player in the early 1920s.

A benchmark model, this is THE essential urban sports shoe, designed to be stable and extremely comfortable too. And, of course, you could get yourself a few pairs in several colours!

The unbeatable Chuck Taylor All Star from Converse has arrived at Sarenza! Made legendary by the NBA basketball player Chuck Taylor, it is still a must-have in the wardrobes of fashionistas and more traditional wearers alike.
The Converse label celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. It was actually in 1917, in Massachusetts, that the first Converse saw the light of day — it was all black and only intended for basketball players. And so it was that for more than 40 years, Converse shoes were exclusively reserved for use in sports. Everything changed when Chuck Taylor decided to wear only Converse shoes for a whole season.
From that point on, the spotlight was on the canvas sports shoe bearing the name of the basketball player: the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star became a must-have product. As a result, the Converse sports shoe is now a firm favourite in the fashion world and among ordinary people.
Everyone from Keira Knightley to Naomi Watts—not forgetting all the fashion writers as well — have made the Converse shoe the pinnacle of fashion… At Sarenza.co.uk, we ascribe to this easy fashion!
