I haven’t been much of a sneaker gal since my high school days, but the latest fall collections by Converse has me thinking twice about my choice of footwear. Launching globally on July 1st, the Fall 2013 Jack Purcell collection has added vintage-like washed textiles to their traditional style, whereas the Converse by John Varvatos collection is embellished with edgy hardware for a rebellious, rock ‘n roll feel. It’s nice and refreshing to see a twist on the tried and true, and seriously has me considering adding these to my fall wardrobe. Perfect for the casual chic days, and the rainy days. See below for my top picks from both collections! Which one are your faves?
