For over 100 years worldwide and 30 years in the Philippines, Converse has been on the mind and feet of the young and the creative. While the classic Chuck Taylor style fits both genders, the ladies- especially the fashion forward- will always need something a little bit more unique to rock the Chucks with their other outfits. As part of this milestone for such an American icon, an exciting ladies line has recently been introduced in the market and I am one of the lucky bloggers who got invited to take a peek. We were able to try the new styles and whadayaknow, we even had an impromptu photo shoot with one of the country’s top photographers Mike Yu of Isnap Creatives.
First off, let me show you Converse’s latest ad.

Anyway, back to the event. It was last Tuesday when I, together with a few bloggers met up with Eli together and the Converse team for an intimate lunch to talk about the ladies line of the brand.
They released five new styles to cater to women who love dressing up and at the same time showing off that girls that wear sneakers are cool.
Ballerina 2630 php
Shoreline 2950 php
So pretty aren’t they? I love that each line is unique yet retained the signature look of the famous Chuck Taylor sneakers. After our lunch, we headed off to the Converse flagship store in Glorietta to get a closer look at the shoes.
