converse-all-stars.jpgI'm not much of a sneaker girl (understatement of the century there), and I'd be unlikely to buy a pair unless I absolutely had to, but if I was going to slip into some sneakers, I think these might be the ones I'd go for. They're Converse's classic All Star design, and the thing that appeals to me most about these is the lovely metallic leather: well, if I'm going to do "casual", I'm going to do it with a touch of glamour if I possibly can! These are $72 at Shopbop, which seems like a reasonable price to me for a pair of shoes that'll probably last you a good long time.
