Even if you’re not into the whole football thing, the kickoff of the FIFA World Cup has brought with it an exciting release: the brand new Converse One Star Canvas Country Pride collection! Originally created as a basketball shoe back in 1974, the One Star sneaker has continually evolved over time and today is loved for its vintage sporty look.

Inspired by togetherness and celebration, this new Converse One Star collection features seven colour variations, each representing different World Cup team colours. Choose from vibrant red, pale grey, forest green, navy, yellow, and black and white. Each features a lightweight canvas upper with suede detailing, a super soft EVA foam insole for cushioning and the signature Converse One Star logo embroidered on the side.

While once a sports shoe designed for the court, this fabulous sneaker is now suited for a more modern lifestyle in the streets. The shoe pairs perfectly with your favourite pair of jeans and a simple tee but can also be dressed up with a party dress or flowing skirt.

The Converse One Star Country Pride collection retails at R999 per pair, and is available from Converse stores, Superbalist.com, X-Trend and Jack Lemkus.
