The Converse VLTG: Who Says Lightning Doesn't Strike Twice?
Way back in 1995; Converse brought out a high energy basketball shoe called The Voltage. Redubbed the Converse VLTG; this long lost on court classic now finds its way back to the shelves; reinterpreted as a super stylish midtop for women. And it comes at the forefront of the Converse VLTG range; which delivers a whole bunch of high and low tops in similarly electrifying colourways. One things for sure; they've gonna bolt off the shelves.
The Converse Mission: Amping up the Volume
The original Voltage definitely had some high performance props; so you can undoubtedly shoot hoops in these updated versions too. However; it's more likely that they'll be worn as a fashion sneaker; and they certainly deliver in that department. They pack a lot of look thanks to their two tone leather uppers with zigzag; lightning bolt-style overlays. There's an embroidered star on the tongue; and more stars and chevrons to the heels. The shark's tooth effect to the midsole adds to their aggressive stance.
Remade for Women
In most ways; the Converse Mission is an authentic reissue of the '90s Voltage. However; it has a stacked heel and higher arches to give it more feminine flair; and it comes with the brand's bouncy SmartFoam cushioning for a smooth; modern ride. It's also finished off with fat laces and a hard-wearing rubber outsole.
Don't be Shy; Give it a Try
The Converse VLTG is full of hiphop attitude; and the brand's own publicity campaign goes the full gangsta by pairing it with baggy layers; tank dresses; tracksuits; crop tops and the like. That said; the shoe's chunky silhouette also works well in contrast to skinny jeans or leggings. And you can always pretty things up with a mini and a glam bomber jacket.
