Converse Run Star Hike Platform High Top$110

Over the past weekend I was at the Ferry Building, picking up oysters from Hog Oyster Island, hotdogs from Golden Gate, and hotdog buns at ACME. I was outside, taking in the view of my city when I saw her, she was an older lady on vacation, she was wearing an oversized coat, big sunglasses and the New Converse Run Star Hike Platform High Top, I fell-in-love.

She was the epitome of chic, I followed her as far as my gaze would allow and even played with the idea of asking her for a photo. I had been debating about buying them, and this finally sent me over the edge.

The minute I got home, I looked for them everywhere online and finally found them at the Footlocker. I can’t wait until they arrive.

In the meantime, ladies, Converse are alive and well all-over the world, from the streets of Milan, Paris, San Francisco and Amsterdam.

Converse no matter how you look at it will always be chic, budget friendly and fit-in in every major city in the world. The color selection is great too, I have a white pair for summer.
