If there is one pair of shoes everyone should own at one point in their lives, it is a pair of Converse. There is no doubt that Converse are a classic fashion staple that can go with just about any outfit. Dress it up, dress it down, a pair of chucks will take you places. This American shoe company was founded in 1908 and has since grew into an internationally-loved shoe brand. This century long-lived company now celebrates 2016 with a Chinese New Year collection honoring the year of the monkey.
The recently released collection was launched on January 15, 2016. The collection’s design was inspired by the classic Chinese story “Journey to the West”. It includes footwear, apparel, and accessories to celebrate the Lunar New Year. According to Converse, “The collection combines modern silhouettes with Chinese styled imagery inspired by The Monkey King, the character in the classic Chinese story Journey to the West. The Chinese New Year collection has a special Year of The Monkey logo on the insole as well as other premium details throughout the collection to represent and celebrate this special year in the Chinese zodiac.”
