There’s are not many things in life that you can’t go wrong with. And a classic pair of 1970s is definetely one of them. Stylistically you can’t go wrong with a pair of converse, just when you think this iconic brand couldn’t keep pumping out that fire. They give you some more heat!
In the displayed images you can see Patrick and I sporting what is the first in a series of updates to Converse’s iconic sneakers the Converse All Star “Modern”. Even though this sneaker carries the same slim silhouette as its cousin the 1970 All Star. The All Star Modern is much lighter in weight.
“With this collection, Converse is delivering a comfortable, lightweight product that’s new, exciting and modern, but still feels very Converse.”said Bryan Cioffi, Vice President/Creative Director of Converse Global Footwear.
Also the amount of flexibility due to the Phylon outsole is a refreshing touch brought to the All Star family. It looks great, breathes easy, and most importantly undoubtedly performs , the Phylon outsole provides your feet a great range of motion and comfort.
In my previous post I mentioned that the Blogger Project this year put together a blogger awards segment of the event. In which we were given categories and the 3-4 nominees to chose from. We would go around visiting the booths of the nominees and give each collection a good run through. Getting the story behind each collection also played a major factor in our decisions. Here are the winners:
THE BEST OF THE TENTS
BEST SWIM / ACTIVE
For those whom may not be familiar with Project let me give you a quick run down of this event. Project is a trade show that is held bi-annually in New York and Las Vegas. Bringing expertise and relevance to the global fashion industry through a highly merchandised and highly visual approach. Project is capable to create destinations where innovation, commerce, and service converge. Thus making it the world’s preeminent contemporary fashion trade event.
Not only was I an attendee at Project Las Vegas, I was also chosen to be on board for the Blogger Project. The Blogger Project is a team of well-recognized editors and menswear aficionados chosen by Marcus Troy. This season the Bloggers chosen for this project teamed up and to celebrate and award brands in the following categories of : The Best Emerging Brand, Best Denim, Best of THE TENTS, Best Footwear, Best Swim / Active, Best Collection, and The Fan Favourite. I will be sharing the winners of these awards in a later post.
