Converse has traded in its famous canvas style for a track inspired sneaker. The Converse Thunderbolt is the third release as part of their Modern Collection, which features iconic styles with modern touches. This collection also includes the Auckland Modern sneakers, which are similar to the Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt is a unisex sneaker that comes in six different color combinations.
Each shoe has a star placed directly in the center on each side as well as a thick arrow pointing forward. Diagonal pin stripes cover the entire shoe and bold colored midsoles adds a fun pop to each pair. Our favorite color combination is the Team Red Ivory and Game Royal for its patriotic vibe and cohesive color blend.
Great colors and retro design aren’t the only benefits of the Thunderbolt Modern. Each pair features a one-piece upper for a lightweight shoe and mesh lining for breathability. The engineered jacruard upper helps with speed and performance during any sport. Inside is a textured sock liner for optimal comfort and the Nike Hyperfuse construction, which is now on every Converse shoe, creates an extremely durable sneaker that gives your feet all day support.
Although this collection is inspired by and for the athlete in you, anyone can wear these sneakers anywhere. Converse has been spending years to completely overhaul their traditional styles and make them new. These shoes came and conquered to celebrate the athletic heritage Converse has been proud to support for decades. Make sure your shoes shine for years to come with Star Cleaner. Use the Ultra Shield to protect from all sorts of weather.
Converse is taking strides to celebrate its heritage in the sporting world. The original All-Star 1920 design has been revamped in structure and material. The Converse All Star Modern Collection features both high top and low cut options in some modern new colors and with new technology.

The new Nike Hyperfuse construction provides durability and added support for years of wear. The Phylon midsole, which provides underfoot cushioning, is lightweight and you’ll feel like you are walking on air. Even the tongue and lining are made to provide you with extreme comfort. Converse coined this collection “the beginning of what’s next” in terms of new durability and comfort options. Converse is always creating ways to make their shoes even better by using modern material technology with their extensive knowledge of shoe manufacturing. Whether you choose white, black, soar, action red or lucid green your feet will feel comfortable and look great.

Our next pick is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride low cut with rainbow speckles design. We love the simplicity of this sneaker that still speaks volumes toward acceptance and equality.
We also like the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride high top with drip paint design. The canvas looks like it was painted with watercolor and is an artistic salute to the movement. There is a similar style available in low cut.
Our last favorite is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride high top with star print. Rainbow colors host stars on the canvas giving this pair a patriotic twist.

Damn Vans back at it again with some fresh new styles. Men and women have some great new looks in footwear and clothing. Although Vans always has unique varieties of footwear that satisfy many tastes, not one style fits all. For the perfect shoe, try out Vans customization.
Step one; pick the perfect pair. Choose one you can see yourself wearing everyday. Every option is comfortable and built to last so the only importance is what you think looks best. After you chose your look its time to choose your fit. Keep in mind not every shoe is available in every fit, some only come in Men’s and Boys while some come from every department.
Step two is the most important and fun, its time to design. Choose from a handful of colors and patterns to design your ideal pair of shoes. Each part of the shoe can have its own fun color added, right down to the tongue binding. If you are the risky type like myself and choose the clean and bright white foxing you might want to get some Star Cleaner for all the messes you might encounter. The Ultra Shield repellent also comes in handy when preparing your shoes for all sorts of weather.
You just spent hours designing a fantastic pair of Vans you will cherish forever. You picked your size and ordered a pair but you want others to be able to gawk at their beauty.
