Here are some items I’ve purchased on the internet in my lifetime: a vintage Late Show with David Letterman sweatshirt; a signed Vince Carter rookie card; a copy of Brand New’s Deja Entendu on vinyl; beef pad see ew from Sukhothai on Dundas Street. One thing I’ve never bought online, though? Converse sneakers. Because up until now, the iconic footwear brand has never had its own Canadian e-commerce site.
That all changes today, with the launch of converse.ca. For the first time ever, we Canucks can get the full range of Converse’s apparel, accessories and classic kicks — from their brand-spankin’-new Flyknit Chuck Taylors to the always-dependable canvas Jack Purcells — delivered right to our doorsteps.
Plus, sockless sneaker weather is finally upon us, fam — this is the perfect time to stock up on all your faves.
