Converse by John Varvatos
Chuck Taylor All Star Vintage Slip
This is a terrific work/casual dress shoe disguised as a Converse slip on. Throw a set of slim laces on them, the white elastic band is puzzling I agree, but I've worn them twice to work and folks are shocked that they're All Stars.Wish they had a WIDE size option. My only deduction.

I'm 100% pleased and happy with my JV Chucks. I could not disagree more with the reviewers who complained about the softness of the leather and supposed crappy soles. I did eventually add shoelaces, just to take them up a notch. The lacing was a crossbar type with hidden "no- tie" aglets. These shoes rock!

They failed on the styling details... what a shame. They looked great but once you put them on you realize the inside is not color matching the the outside of the shoe and you can see it. The shoe is black and the inside was white! What a design flaw.

I'm kinda disappointing notes in the Varvatos Converse lately. I had a par of the first Black Leather and white toe Varvatos converse. The leather was soft and it felt like a luxury shoe. I thought this would have been a blacked out version of the same shoe. It's not. This shoe feels like 3rd tier, Pakistani leather you would find at swap meet leather goods... i tried putting them in shoe stretchers hoping it would soften the leather but nope. The soles are pretty garbage as well. I swap out my soles from my Vhuck Taylor II's. The Lunarlon sole is thinner but way more comfortable. I'm on the fence about returning these shoes. I've worn them for about 5 minutes so far around the house. Don't think I can last a full day in these outside of the house.
