The Converse One Star celebrates the look of the '90s and the color-blocking trend in skate culture. It features a premium suede upper with bright colors, a contrasting Star underlay and a color-popped lining. One Star Origins: Since its groundbreaking debut in 1974, there has been no branch of modern style that hasn't been informed by the One Star. Originally built for the basketball court, its boldness was later adopted and owned by the independents. Constantly reimagined by those on the fringes, it remains unstoppable. Some shoes get lost in history. One Star bends history towards it.
