Converse All-Star High-Tops will always be a favorite among sneaker purists, but there’s something about the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Low that feels particularly fashion-forward. Even though Converse low-tops are the high-top’s younger sibling, they’re not exactly new. In fact, Converse debuted the very first pair of low-cut Converse sneakers all the way back in 1957 and haven’t changed them much since. The main difference between high-top and low-top Chuck Taylors — besides their topline, of course — is that low-tops don’t have the iconic round ALL★STAR patch at the ankle.
With low-cut and low-profile sneakers making a seriously big comeback in streetwear, these low Chucks are gaining a whole new reputation. While both the high-top and low-top Converse sneakers have a distinctly retro flair (the former is over 100 years old, by the way), low-tops are a bit more versatile and relaxed. Both styles are traditionally known for their lightweight, flexible canvas upper and sturdy, rubber sole. These days, though, you can get Converse low-tops in a wide range of materials, colors and even fun patterns.
