Converse Drops One Star In Several New Colors & Styles
We walk through its rebellious past.
The Converse One Star is back and bigger than ever. First appearing in a rad 1974 catalog with the text, “There is only one All Star. Converse makes it. Only sporting goods dealers sell it.”, the sneaker we've come to know as the One Star was a top-of-the-range ball shoe when it was released, only to be phased out a couple of years later.
The perfect shoe for a new wave of rebellion, it made a comeback in 1993, repped by the skater and grunge scenes and the legendary Kurt Cobain. Converse teamed up with Courtney Love to release a Kurt Cobain tribute pair in 2008. With sporadic releases throughout the following years, the One Star has stayed a firm favorite with the skate community and '90s-style heads.
It's biggest revival, however, came in Fall 2017, remastered for today's influencers in premium materials. You can't have missed the One Star collaborations with the likes of Tyler, The Creator and Neighborhood, either.
Now Converse is kicking off 2018 with a big release of this iconic silhouette, coming in a range of new and OG colors and styles, including several camo-print options, premium suede, and even a flatform.
You can cop the One Star on February 1 in sizes 3 to 16, with prices ranging from $70 to $95. Peep the sneaks in the gallery above.
