Perhaps it's something to do with this time of year, but I keep catching myself thinking about how much I need to replenish my supply of Converse trainers at the moment. My old pair is looking a little battered, and it would be great to refresh them with something a bit more summery. I think I may have just found their successors...

Hawaiian Converse all star

Converse Chuck Taylor Hawaiian Print hi-tops >>

The Navy and flower-print plimsolls are the perfect match for summer denims and paler colours, and will add a casual and holiday-ish feel to your look. Also available in a tangerine orange with punchy yellow flowers, they're bursting with tropical sunshine and floral panache. They're available in men's sizes too, which I can see working particularly well as an alternative to the more traditional loud shirt!

A dfinite contender for my all-weather summer shoe, this is now firmly on my wishlist for replacement Converse - along with the plain, dark red wine colour that I've seen looking totally awesome while out and about in the sun this week.
