It was such an honour and exciting time to be able to afford some of you awesome guys an opportunity to attend the Converse store openings in Gateway (Durban) and Sandton City (Johannesburg) over the last few weeks. I think it was a great way to kick off December as well as celebrate Converse’s official opening of their speciality retail stores.
Converse is a brand, as I have said, which I have grown up adoring. It’s a brand which really believes in the importance of individual style as well as comfort. I love the many unique ways you can jazz up your chucks and walk around in crazy, cool style! The stores in both JHB and DBN will offer over 100 different styles for men, women and children will be on offer including Chuck Taylor All Star, Jack Purcell, CONS, Converse by John Varvatos as well as other premium footwear collaborations.
Fans of the brand can expect to see limited edition collections, premium footwear, apparel and accessories on a scale that has never been accessible before in South Africa. The highly sought-after Chuck II sneakers will also be available in these stores. Where can I start lining up to get my hands on a pair!?
I sadly was not able to head to the JHB store opening due to work but I heard it was incredible! I can’t wait to go around and discover all of the new styles and be inspired by the designs. I’m always loved fashion and style as well as what it does to really bring upon so many ideas in my mind – it must be the illustrator in me!
I suggest heading out (if you’re in DBN or JHB) to the Converse stores – I know it will be a treat for any style conscious person. I know my friends are really excited about the stores just as much as me. The moment more stores are open in the country you can bet I will let you know about it! You won’t want to be the person not stepping out in style with a cool pair of Converse sneakers!
