The Converse Wade

Basketball superstar Dwyane Wade first created his own signature shoe, the Converse WADE, in 2005. Now he has a variety of signature shoes that he's worn over the years, and he's also been a part of the first apparel line Converse has developed for a professional athlete.

Converse All-Stars

The most successful shoe in history, the Converse All-Stars originally gained popularity when basketball player Chuck Taylor started wearing them. They were first only available in black and later in white. But now they can be found in a variety of styles, materials, colors and prints! Some very cute prints are available and you can even make your own at the Converse website.

I'm also loving how Twilight’s Kristen Stewart has once again popularized this sneaker brand. Below I've included a photo from an amazing Vanity Fair photo shoot of the Twilight cast and an image of Kristen Stewart wearing a Yigal AzrouĆ«l dress at this year's MTV Movie Awards.Twilight Cast in Vanity Fair Photo ShootConverse All-StarsConverse All-Star Black Hi-TopConverse All-Star Red Hi-TopKristen Stewart in Converse ShoesConverse Logo
