Last Thursday JD Sports sent me some new Converse Star Player trainers.
Mine are in Radio Blue. I used to wear Converse a lot growing up so I knew I had some good trainers coming, but I was still pleasantly surprised. These are fantastic.
Apparently they’re based on an original 1957 design, so you still have the simple Converse style and the canvas upper. But you’ve got modern cleverness at work, too. These are super comfortable and the soles have a tremendous sponginess that has you wanting to keep them on all day. They look great, they feel great: result.
