Brownish Leather Converse white sole lace up sneakers :- I love these sneakers, this is one of my favorite from all star. The All Star was to be the first mass produced basketball shoe in North America. It consisted of a very thick rubber sole, and an ankle covering canvas (or sometimes leather) upper. In 1944 after World War ll Converse started making Black and White canvas high tops. This shoe was a far cry from the original 1917 version which was a soft leather. Today, Converse is back to the original and uses a supple leather to manufacture one of the most iconic shoe in the world.
