REVIEW // All The Thoughts Running Through My Head Before Trying The Converse One-Star

words & photos // Ray P.:

If it wasn’t for collaborations and the internet, my style would lack serious diversity. I grew up in NYC, where we all wanted to dress like basketball players from the warm-up suits down to the sneakers. Through different tastemakers such as Supreme, Stussy and Undefeated, I was able to step out of my basketball bubble and get into kicks I usually would never even look twice at. It started with Nike SB Dunks, Blazers, Converse Chuck Taylors, and more recently the One Star… we didn’t wear any of those in the Bronx when I was growing up. Coincidentally, three of those became some of my favorite silhouettes of all time.

When I look at collaborations now, I’m always open to what I can incorporate into my style next. Just the other day, I woke up feeling like a young Arthur Ashe on the tennis court, so I dressed accordingly. Now, queue the newly released UNDFTD x Converse One Star.

When it comes to Converse, I really only check for the Chuck Taylor. So, when I got word about this new collaboration, I was intrigued. I like new experiences. That army colored shaggy suede and UNDFTD Strikes logo on the tongue caught my eye quickly. I also noticed the shoes use the same sole from the 1970s Chuck Taylor, which is my favorite iteration of the iconic shoe because of its unreal comfort. Other Chucks, as you probably know, can be firm.

When I look at this One Star, I envision a cross between classic LA style and street skater vibes. You know, some slacks I cut with a pair of scissors, paired with striped socks. A vibe I’d be comfortable skating in and just hanging out in. I might’ve gotten that feeling because Undefeated is synonymous with both styles, and they captured it so well on this shoe.

Tyler the Creator was spotted with a similar aesthetic in recent editions of Celebrity Sneaker Stalker, and later officially announced his partnership with Converse in the form of an official Flower Boy collaboration on the One-Star. That dude has a lot of style and makes them look really good. I could see the One-Star’s appeal especially now that Vans Old Skools are being worn by literally everyone on the planet.

My favorite thing about Converse is that their sneakers get better with age and dirt only continues to add character. I can appreciate the One-Star because I’m really only spending over 0 these days for the adidas Ultra Boost, so getting fresh for only is great.

Now for the question I know you’ll ask, would I buy the Converse One-Star over the Vans Old Skool? Honestly, no. But I have so many Old Skools, that it’s time to try something new and that’s what this silhouette represents to me.

Different is fresh, that’s the motto I live by.

Do all of these thoughts go through your head when copping sneakers? I know it happens to me all the time. I want to make sure I purchase with reason, especially since I don’t have the budget to buy a bunch of shoes every month. I just moved to LA, and that’s all I need to say about my expenses — lmao. I can deal with adding a shoe into the rotation for – 0. Anything over that is just not happening.

The Converse One-Star is worth the try. It’s priced right, you can customize your pair if you really wanted, you can style it up really nice and best of all it’s different. What do you think? Drop me your thoughts via Twitter or Instagram, let me know if this shoe is on your radar to try next.

Grab a detailed look at the Undefeated x Converse One-Star below and you can shop the silhouette in many colors online at Converse.com right now.

After much speculation surrounding his new footwear partnership, Tyler, the Creator today announces a forthcoming Converse One Star release with a new video campaign.

The smartly curated clip features Tyler being interrogated about his new Converse deal, in which he hilariously deadpans having any knowledge of.

Tyler’s One Star is said to have been handpicked by the rapper himself and features foundational sock liner graphics found only through this offering. It’s also reported that 2,100 pairs will be given to those who were able to attend last year’s Golf Wang Fashion Show.
