When we think of a classic shoe, most of the time it is a black pump that pops up from the back of our minds. One of the most classic shoes out there though, in my opinion are Converse sneakers. They have been out there for decades, they never changed a bit and they will not disappear quite soon.

Despite the fact that I used to love wearing these with a super simple and comfy look, I now rather go for contrast and mix them with a sophisticated skirt -that means knee length in my vocabulary- instead of a pair of skinny jeans and the perfect white t-shirt.

You know how they say if the shoe fits, get them in multiple colors. I am currently thinking of going even more classic and get them in black. What do you think?

  1. Yess, converse sneakers are one of the most timeless items! You never can wrong with them! I also like to style them with a more girly look to mix it a bit up! I don’t know what it is but I don’t like the black version of them! But again, they are timeless like hell!

  2. Ik ben het helemaal met je eens! Ik heb ook de off white versie, laag en het zijn absoluut mijn meest gedragen én gecombineerde schoenen. De zwarte staan ook op mijn wensenlijstje en ik denk dat ik ze ook maar snel ga halen. Altijd goed!

  3. I love the black ones even more, so I’d say go for it!

  4. I agree with converse sneakers! It’s one of my faves too and love how you pull them off! xx

  5. I wore my pair of white Converse yesterday and this morning my foot sole and my back are so sore… I think my body misses high heels. But as you say, they are a good change to break a classic look. A pair of black Converse, Go for it Tiger !

  6. I got them in black, and love them!!

  7. I love how they can be worn by every kind of person and always look right. Babies, teens adults… This is the only item I can think of, that manages to stay cool even though EVERYBODY owns a pair. I love that, and I love all my All Stars :)

    1. @Simone: Completely agree on that!

  8. i have a black one and thinking of getting a white-creamish one too !!
    I don’t wear them often but I love the idea of collecting them I guess lol..

  9. I love these shoes for a while now and I don’t think that there is one shoe you can compare with those. Black ones are classic you’re right and the really fit to everything, I have 2 black pairs myself and nearly where them every day. But I also got some green ones. Not the normal green but more pastel, looks kind of grassy, and I love them even more than the black, because they give that special pop to an simple outfit, what I really love! Just have a try and see if it works for you! and visit my blog if you want!
    love Lea

  10. all stars are always great with everything!!!! ;) xo, Alma

  11. I absolutely agree, Converse are definitely in the Classic shoes category!
    Xoxo, Peppi

  12. I think you should get them in a neon yellow to contrast with your minimalist grey and black wradrobe. It would add a nice pop of color :)

    1. @STYLE CROISSANT: I am not too fond of neon, but I like the thought of adding some color, so I will definitely think about it.

  13. Love them!!!! Had them for years. And when you buy new ones, you are still as excited as when you got your first pair! All stars rule! In every colour!

  14. You should definitely get the low ones in black. I have ’em and I wear them non stop. :) // x Krizia // Shark Attack – Fashion Blog

  15. my favorite shoes ever. I have them in white, black and an old purple!

  16. love them so much! I have a similar pair… but in grey and blue :)

  17. I love converse sneakers! I have them in white, blak and green. They are comfortable and cool. But lately I’ve been cheating on the with my new Supergas…

  18. I’ve dedicated a whole board onto converse shoes on pinterest, hehe.. love my black ones, but looking for the all white version now..

  19. Ik zou ook zwarte halen, super leuk vind ik ze, ik heb ze zelf namelijk ook! xxx

  20. Als ik even niet zo snel weet welke schoenen aan te doen, grijp ik meestal meteen naar mijn creme/gele converse schoenen. Maar ze worden vooral gebruikt voor een avondje stappen, haha :)

    Wil ze ook nog heel graag in het zwart!

  21. All stars are always good, so a black pair wouldn’t be wrong.

  22. Ben het helemaal met je eens. Jammer genoeg zijn de mijne niet bepaald meer wit, omdat ik ze zoveel heb gebruikt. Nu heb ik ‘burgundy’ besteld, maar die wil ik liever wel schoon houden haha

  23. Yes they are classics! I have them! I am a big fan of converse :)

    Check out my blog, if you like follow me!


  24. I agree! The converse sneakers are a classic!

  25. Love them! I love the idea of wearing them with sophisticated clothes, I think the result could be brilliant… Whites are my favorites, for some reason I find them much more easy to pair than black ones.

  26. Ik heb ze ook, en ze zijn echt gewoon verslavend. Ik draag ze dan ook tot de gaten erin zitten!

  27. Yes, get them in black! This is so funny—I just posted my collection of Converse on my blog!

  28. I looove converse! They’re the best!

  29. I have them in black and white :)

  30. I agree with you, Converse shoes are great! But I think that the short, white one are the most classic. I have black and white and love them both.

    You should clean your shoes, I know that the white one become dirty veeeery fast, but seeing these shoes white and shining is priceless :D

  31. Converse trainers are perfect. They match everything, evenn elegant black little dress. I really recommend you buying also a pair of black Converse, you will be very happy with them. ;)

  32. Love them. I also own converse shoes! In black. They areee sooo goodd. Love it.

  34. totally.. get black too! it’s good to have options:-)

  35. Love them, I have them in black low and white high. Also want grey and navy :)

  36. Converse All Stars will eternally be a stylish shoe! I love it!

  37. I so agree. A total classic and when sneakers are mentioned as a part of the basic wardrobe, I immediately come to think of the Converse All Star. Wishing for a pair from the smoked canvas limited edition.

  38. I think it would be better to go for military green or grey ones or some other colour. I really don`t like black converse, even if I love them, but in other colours. :)) maybe you can go for all star light version high tops? :)

  39. I love, love, LOVE Converse! I have a blue starry pair and I also want to get the studded ones!

  40. i love your every look when you wear this converse sneakers

  47. I Love converse sneakers. I weare them for years! Last year i made a switch to Vans and now i made a switch back.
    They are so timeless!


  48. I have a pair of black ones and whenever I don’t know what shoes to wear, I always go for the black converse as just like yours, they go with everything.

    I also really like the bordeaux red ones. They would suit a lot from your wardrobe as well :)

  49. I say have a pair in both black and white. That way you have some versatility. Converse are the best!

  50. Donker blauw vind ik mooier, maar zwart past bij meer.

  51. A sale is just not you? Oh my. What an aristocrat! Of course we wouldn’t expect a trend setter like you to stoop to looking at the fashion left overs. You need good lighting, and a peaceful atmosphere at all times, no? What a crock of poop. Well, you probably don’t have the imagination to use an unusual piece anyhow. While I like a lot of the same brands as you do, I don’t think I like you at all.

    In that spirit; I love Converse. Black and white only. Never did go for the colors. I like Keds too. In navy. Ok. Guess you just remoinded me why I don’t read these personal blogs.

    1. Woah! Chill out Martine. What crawled up your butt?
