With the 4th of July one day away, what better way to celebrate the holiday than by rocking stars and stripes? Not on a flag, however; no, I’m talking about shoes: the Converse First String Chuck Taylor All Star “Denim Stars and Stripes”, to be exact.
Featuring an all-blue denim upper, alternating between dark and light blue stripes, this new take on the American treasure that is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star personally remind me more of something Johnny Cash might’ve seen on an inmate’s foot in Folsom Prison, rather than the Stars and Stripes of the American Flag, but hey – stars and stripes are stars and stripes, am I right? An aged blue leather can be found on the toecap, while a worn, tan leather patch on the medial side of the upper, towards the heel, adds a nice extra touch. Stars printed up and down the blue denim tongue add to the patriotic affair, making this a perfect shoe for your July 4th barbecue.
Pick up a pair now at select Converse retailers like Kith, and hit the jump for a more detailed look at these newly-released kicks, and let us know in the comments below: are these more Johnny Cash than John Adams (he had something to do with the 4th of July… maybe…)?
