I’ve never owned a pair of All Stars Converse sneakers because I felt that they didn’t suit my style. I know, I’m one of the few. But recently I spotted the above streetstyle picture of Poppy Delevigne and decided that it was time for my first pair of Converse Chucks.
The difference between the normal chucks and these ones is, of course, that the are the reevaluated pimped studded kind. My love for studs have been around for some time and I love it on either bags or shoes, it doesn’t really matter. Partly why I am so crazy about my See By Chloe boots. Even though All Stars have had all kinds of changes over the years, this new evolution made my heart do a little flip. And now I’m at the stage that I’m looking for the fastest way to get a pair on my feet.
As it always goes, the search for the perfect pair of studded converse sneakers started. I like the ones on Free People and the dirty black sneakers from Bess. But as I see the classic Converse as quite a basic shoe, I quickly noticed that these studs significantly add to the price. Therefore I figured “hey I can do that too”. So I’m putting this little obsession on the schedule as my next DIY project. I found some great DIY’s on Chictopia, Glamour and Sketch 42 (if Converse isn’t your thing, you can do the same on a pair of Vans). I’ll keep you posted on how my DIY is going!
