Converse trainers are known to be very stylish and trendy elements of fashion. However, they first made their debut as basketball shoes as they were worn by basketball players during games. Later the shoes were mostly seen on skateboarders and punks. Yet due to the comfort and simplicity of their design more and more people have adopted the trend to play around with their style. Here you will find 5 simple ways to enhance your style with the use of Converse shoes.


First thing to keep in mind before we get to styling, is that Converse as nice as they are when you first buy them and have them on in their mint condition, they are also shoes that look really good as well when worn out. They give a different devil may care look to your overall style.

  1. Suits… usually one wouldn’t really resort to trainers when wearing a suit. However, if you have a nice fitted black suit that is properly altered on your height and measurements, it’s very nice to defeat the norms and throw on a pair of Converse.
