The Converse brand is one of those brands that will never run out of style. Many other companies have tried to emulate the brand’s style and success but to no avail. There’s something about the uniqueness and simplicity of Converse shoes that many people gravitate towards. Most of their shoes are perfect for everyday wear, and that’s exactly what people do. Converse shoes are essentially go-to shoes for many people. They’re the type of shoes that you could wear dressed up or down, and their unisex styles are unlike any other. If you’re looking for shoes that you could wear for any occasion, here are five of the best black converse sneakers that will be your best options.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star
There’s nothing like classic Chucks. These are the quintessential Converse shoes. They’re the ones that people think of when they think of Converse sneakers. These simple low-top sneakers will never go out of style. The classic look of it can go with absolutely anything in your wardrobe—whatever you may have on. You can have this style in monochrome black or in the classic black with white stitching and white toecap and bottom. You could never go wrong with either style, and we’ll even take it a step further and say that you should have at least one in your closet at all times.
Converse All Star Hi
Take the Chuck Taylors and hike up the ankle support—you’ll have the ultra fashionable and iconic All Star Hi sneakers. This is a look that not everyone could just pull off. You’ll need a bit of personality and style in order to get this right. But don’t worry; black chucks make it easy to pull together the perfect outfit. Chuck Taylor high tops still have the same qualities: canvas upper, rubber outsoles and toecaps, extreme comfort and durability, and sheer genius design. Whether you go for the monochromatic black or the classic black and white is up to you. But much like with the low tops, you can’t go wrong with either one as well.
Converse Leather Oxford
Imagine the classic Chuck Taylor style and you pretty much have this shoe. The only thing different is the upper, and it actually makes a pretty big difference. Given its name, the Leather Oxford replaces the usual canvas upper of a regular Chuck Taylor with leather. The result is something that feels very different on your feet compared to the canvas. For one, your feet will feel a little more cushion and protection. Two, your feet will also feel slightly warmer, which is perfect for wearing your Chucks on cooler months. We certainly don’t have a preference, but if you like the leather look, you should definitely go for this one.
Chuck Taylor Street Mid Sneaker
These unisex sneakers are the middle point between the high tops and low tops. It’s something you should look into if you can’t decide between those two styles. The Mid sneaker is advertised as a “street look,” but really, all Converse shoes could be categorized as such. That being said, there is a certain spunk to the Chuck Taylor Street style. It has a slightly faded black fabric look to it that gives it a bit of personality and depth. The cushioning around the ankle is also stylish, but it looks more comfortable than anything. These sneakers have the white toecap and rubber outsoles to complete the look. It’s a beautiful option for anyone looking for something different than the usual Chucks.
Chuck Taylor All Star Ballet Lace Up
This style is particularly for women or anyone else that might like it. The Ballet Lace Up has a different look compared to any other Converse design. The upper of the shoe doesn’t cover the entire upper part of the foot; it only covers the toes. The lace up part also comes already laced. The textile upper is very comfortable, and gives this shoe the look of the classic Chucks while still retaining its own style and form. This is the perfect shoe for everyday wear because it’s essentially a slip on. There’s no need to tie a knot to keep this shoe in place. It’s a great option for those looking for a Converse sneaker that’s slightly different but still recognizably Converse.
