Converse's Fall Line Include Inspiration from 1960s Musicians and Kiddie Lit

Converse recently had its fall line launch in downtown Toronto.  Of all the new lines introduced, which included one inspired by Dr. Seuss books, the one which struck Prospere Magazine the most was one based in 1960s musicians.  Created by Chuck Tayor, this All Star 1969 collection features shoes named after great artists such as Janis Jopin (left), Jimi Hendrix and The Greatful Dead.  The styles are very unique and for some pieces, take individuals with a very interesting tastes to wear.  The price range for these shoes will vary between $70 and $12o in Canada. 

For kids, there is a collection based on five Dr. Seuss books.  From the Cat and the Hat to Green Eggs and Ham and Things One (left) and Two, these colourful shoes are a great way to encourage kids to read.  Like the All Star 1969 collection, the patterns on the shoes are quite unique and its crazy colours would definitely appeal to kids.  A favourite of mine is the Thing shoes.  Available in both kids (2-10) and youth sizes (10.5-3), these shoes are orange, white and blue in colour, these shoes are named after the famous duo from Cat and the Hat. They are expected to arrive in mid-July, in time for the back-to-school season to start.
