If you really know me, you know I love me some sneaker wedges! Converse has taken their Lux silhouette, which has a hidden internal 2.44-inch wedge to give your height a boost, and completely encased it in premium leather. The result is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Lux Shroud, delivering a bold, fashion-forward look that helps protect your feet from the elements. These would look amazing on with a pair of skinny jeans, a tank top and a jean jacket over it. Big shades, hair in a pony and big earrings.

And if the Star Lux Wedge wasn't enough Converse announced earlier this month that they are paying radical homage to the punk era with a full range of alternative footwear for men and women. Converse goes against the grain with the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 high top, flipping the classic construction from front to back in an act of creative subversion. The unique design features a rear-seamed white leather upper with the tongue and waxed black leather lacing on the heel.
The Punk Pack – for women only – features misfit-like details adopted into the Chuck Taylor All Star high top silhouette, including gold studded hardware across the upper. The sneakers are available in monochrome black and white leather, and finished with star-shaped studs across the tongue, inspired by punk’s resistance to mainstream music.
The Celebration of Punk Collection will be available at Converse stores, online at Converse.com and at specialty retailers for a suggested retail price of $120-$130 USD. The Women's Punk Pack will also be available on Converse.com, as well as Converse stores and NastyGal, retailing for $125 USD
