The Converse All Star, also known as the Chuck Taylor, has been a popular style for kids of all ages for more than fifty years. As time goes on, Converse keeps adding new touches to make the Chuck Taylor live on, including making kids’ versions of the shoes more kid-friendly, and more parent-friendly as well.
Any parent knows that getting a little kid to put on his or her shoes can be an ordeal, especially when those shoes need to be tied before going anywhere. The whole family can be ready to go, and then get stalled when the shoes need to go on. The Converse All Star Easy Slip is perfect for kids who don’t know how to tie their shoes and the parents who love them, as well as kids who refuse to tie their shoes. Featuring the same great look as a Chuck Taylor High Top, the Easy Slip has an elasticized lacing system that gives the shoe the lace-up look without the hassle, along with Dual Velcro® side panels. Available in a number of colors, the Easy Slip makes both kids and their parents happy.
For the littlest of kiddos, the Chuck Taylor All Star Crib Shoe brings the streetwise style of the classic sneaker to the smallest of feet. The All Star Crib Shoe features a non-slip bottom perfect for infants and toddlers, and a heel pull loop for easy on-off.
Another easy option for kids and parents with the Chuck Taylor look is the Simple Step, which features optional lacing and an alternate Velcro® closure. Kids can learn to tie their shoes with the Simple Step, but they can also be easily taken on and off with the alternate closure.
Another slip-on with the look of a Chuck Taylor, the Street Mid, is available in a number of sizes and colors as well as in both leather and canvas, features a heel pull loop and elastic goring, along with a padded collar for snug comfort once the shoe is pulled on.
On the other end of the spectrum, older kids who are fully self-sufficient when tying their shoes might want something more from their Chuck Taylors. That’s where the Loopholes come in—Loopholes come with two sets of laces for endless weaving possibilities, allowing kids (and parents) to customize their Chuck Taylor low tops and add a whole new flair to an old classic. Check out our video for some tips and tricks on how to lace up your Loopholes, and leave some comments about your favorites!
