People have a tendency to love shoes. The particular type of shoes they decide to go with have a lot to do with the way they see themselves as an individual, not to mention the activities they routinely participate in. If you're a person that is active and you like to participate in sports, you've probably owned at least a few pairs of Converse high tops over the years. This is especially true if you're a little bit older or if you simply have a flair for things that have some history behind them. After all, Converse is a company that's been around for several decades now and when they decided to bring back one of their most popular high top shoes a few years ago, people were clamoring to get their hands on them. Stores couldn't keep them in stock, no matter how many they ordered.
This started an entirely new trend in high top shoes. Up until then, most companies had all but stopped making high tops. It was a fashion statement of the past and had largely lost popularity with the general public. Thanks to Converse, high tops are now alive and well. By all accounts, it looks like they're here to stay. In fact, you can read more about five of the most popular versions of high tops made by Converse below.
Chuck Taylor All-Star High Top Sneaker
This is a great-looking shoe that's made for both men and women. It's actually marketed as a unisex variety, meaning that the same shoes can be worn by both genders. As is the case with most Converse shoes, it's perfect for a game of basketball or virtually any other type of athletic endeavor unless you plan on running cross-country in them. In addition, these shoes are just as much at home being worn on a casual Saturday. They feature the classic Converse high top design and come in a beautiful gray color with the Converse logo contrasting in white.
Chuck Taylor All-Star High Top Sneaker for Kids
Just as the name implies, this is the same great sneaker as the one listed above, only it's designed exclusively for kids. The thing that really sets it apart, other than the fact that it's obviously designed for younger individuals, is that it comes in so many different color varieties. You can purchase the shoe in the more standard white, black or gray. You can also go out on a limb and get something a little more vivid. They even offer the shoe in pink.
Chuck Taylor All-Star High Top Leather Sneaker
These particular high tops have proven to be extremely popular, and just as you would think by reading the name of the shoe, the familiar canvas material is replaced with leather. This is a great option for anybody that lives in areas where it rains a lot or where they simply don't want to get their canvas shoes dirty every time they go outside. The shoes also make a great fashion statement. You can purchase them in either black or white.In addition, the same shoe can be worn by both men and women.
Chuck Taylor All-Star Monochrome Sneaker
This is essentially the same design as the sneaker listed above in the number one spot. The thing that makes it different is its design. As opposed to having a logo that contrasts with the overall finish of the shoe, this particular version provides a more subdued look. Just as the name implies, both the shoe color and the logo are one in the same. Aside from that, it's virtually the same shoe. However, it's a perfect fit for people that don't want to stand out quite as much as someone wearing a white shoe with a bright blue logo, for example.
Chuck Taylor All-Star Americana High Top Sneaker
On the other hand, if you do want to stand out, this is the perfect way to do it. You can also display your patriotic nature at the same time. There's a reason that these sneakers are referred to as Americana high tops. Both the color scheme and the overall design makes the shoes resemble an American flag. It's the perfect example for you're more casual days or for those times when you want to make a statement at the local Fourth of July celebration.
