Converse Crafting Dreams
Starting today Converse will host “Chucks By You,” a sneaker customization experience from December 8–24 at The Galleria on Level 1, offering a rare opportunity to work one-on-one with a Converse shoe designer to create a pair of custom Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars, “Chucks.” Since the 70s, the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star hi- and low-top sneakers have continued to be a cultural icon for self-expression and are available in many colors and fabrications for the entire family. With proof of purchase of Chuck Taylor All Stars from a qualifying retailer, customers may choose from themed starter packs with embroidered patches and laces, and a variety of grommets, aglets, lace bolts, as well as other do-it-yourself options using markers and stencils.
