Converse is putting a new spin on a classic for 2016, taking its iconic One Star silhouette and upgrading it with premium materials.

Fabricated from soft but durable hairy suede, the new Converse One Star includes a Nike Lunarlon sockliner for cushioning and a lightweight traction rubber outsole for better grip. But it’s not only about the comfort – these trainers deliver on style too.

You can grab a pair in any of Converse’s four classic colourways: black, yellow, blue and red, all with the iconic star cutout. A higher foxing tape also gives them a sleek, timeless silhouette that will ensure they outlast your own misguided attempt to grow long hair.

The new Converse One Star Hairy Suede Sneaker will be available from March 11 at Converse retail stores, select independent retailers and online at, priced £65.
