Groundbreaking, bold and constantly re-imagined. The One Star remains unstoppable.
Third time’s the charm for the vintage classic styling of the One Star sneaker from Converse.
The One Star first hit the scene in the 1970s, as a low-top off-shoot of the iconic All Star.
Even though the now-iconic star insignia shone brightly from the side of the shoe, it was only available for a year before quietly disappearing from shelves.
Two decades later, the One Star was back and immediately adopted by the burgeoning skate community.
Street culture at the time was turning its back on conformity, and the One Star – seen as gritty and defying convention – was at the centre of this attitude.
The One Star has survived the test of time.
Today the likes of A$AP Nast, Swedish songwriter, Tove Lo, Brockhampton, Leo Mandella, Mabel McVey and Oh Hyuk, are drawn to the unique heritage of this iconic shoe.
With its low streamlined profile and “hairy” suede, this shoe is the epitome of inner-city urban grit.
