Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes are one of the most popular and most comfortable sneakers out there for both sexes. It is almost certain you’ll find a pair or more of its high top or low top classics in the wardrobes of sneaker freaks.

Even though the classics are usually the most preferred, their wide range of collaborative pieces – be it limited or mass-produced – also make for a collector’s item among fans.
