Slam Jam has been rooted in youth culture since 1989 and is widely recognized for its refined take on street style – a natural partner for the Converse First String Jack Purcell Johnny Ox, a sneaker that stirs anticipation of a summer of creative exploration.
I feel as if you can’t go wrong when it comes to the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. GREEN DAY took full advantage of the silhouette for their album trilogy. TRE! being the last design of the collaboration. You can find these now at Converse retail stores and www.converse.com

Everyday we wake up and have many decisions to make. For me it starts with shoes. Whether I’m wearing sneakers or shoes it’s all about the footwear. Yesterday was no different. I could see it in my head, maybe I was influenced by the men of style series I watched the night before but I saw it all before it even started.
I felt like wearing white Converse. Converse are a simple versatile shoe that can be dressed up or down. Locally, right now Miami has great weather so pants can be worn easily. I chose my Dockers D1 Slim fit, added a Publish Brand short sleeve button down shirt and finished things of with a white belt and a hat. The truth is, it really doesn’t matter what you wear as long as you’re okay with it.
