A look into shoes that are trending this season

The classic silhouette of the Chuck Taylor “All-Star” sneaker continues to be timeless. This fall, try out the Converse Chuck 70. The upper of the Chuck is constructed with a thicker, more durable cotton material that will help keep your chucks looking pristine throughout the season. The outsole has an extra layer of rubber while keeping a tapered look, also with an off-white finish that tones down the sole. Since Converse in owned by Nike, it was only right to add comfort into their redesigned Chuck. Comfort is something Chuck Taylors tend to be lacking. Nike brought a new insole to the table with the Chuck Taylor 70 by adding a comfortable padded insole that helps with arch support for a much more secure fit. Investing into this shoe is a great way to have vintage style with a high quality performance, compared to the original Chuck Taylor “All Star”.

The Nike Air Force One has been hot this year. Icons such as Travis Scott, collaborating with Nike, releasing two different colorways with a canvas upper in sail and white with interchangeable swooshes and patches. Also A$AP MOB, with multiple customs designed by A$AP Rocky, and A$AP Bari’s VLONE clothing line collaborating with Nike on the Air Force One. Resale value on the white Travis Scott Air Force One can range between $500 to $1000, and the Vlone collaboration Air Force One runs from $2000 to around $3000, but don’t let that crush your dreams of purchasing stylish Air Force Ones. For the past few years, the Air Force One model from lows, mids, and highs, have been very popular, worn by all sorts of celebrities all the way to just your average Joe. You can go out to any Footlocker and purchases arguably the most timeless and classic shoe of all time: the Nike Air Force One Low. Ranging in many different colorways, from unique to classic, you can find the perfect pair that’ll go with your style. Since Air Force Ones have continued to stick around for decades, you can find them averagely for around $90, but there are plenty on sale that will drop in price to around $60. Investing into any cut of Air Force One, from low to high, will be worth every penny since the shoe will continue to stay in style for many years to come.
