Product Details
Launched back in 1917 as a basketball shoe, All Star high-tops soon became a sneaker icon beloved by college jocks and garage band-ers alike (yes, your high-school crush probably still has a pair). We're big fans of these plush velvet Chucks and their '90s vibe. When you select your size, "H" equals a half size.

Converse® Chuck Taylor All Star High-Top Sneakers in Velvet

Converse® Chuck Taylor All Star High-Top Sneakers in Velvet is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Velvet Converse Hi-Tops? How DREAMY! I wanted the pink but decided on the black velvet version and couldn't be happier! I initially thought the fabric felt a little thin and cheap though I love the way they wear and have received tons of compliments as my new favorite street look with a more formal coat and chewed hem jeans... they are surprisingly easy to take on and off and - like with my other converse I add insoles to better support my high arch - they are very comfortable for all day and I only had to adjust the tongue twice on an all-day wear. A great value for the price especially once they went on sale.... I may need that pink pair too, after all! ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER CUTE! I wore this for a week to test it out regarding how easy would it be for me to keep it clean without scotchguard, etc. It wasn't too bad and I took it out in several different climates and conditions! Received tons of compliments wherever I went as well! When I got home, I would take a towel and just wipe off the dust or clumsy me, where I would step on myself or trip. This shoe does run slightly big. I am usually a 7.5 but I ordered 7 and it fits perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twist on a classic I've always wanted a pair of black, high top chucks! I was not expecting to find these when I was looking through my local Madewell's sales section. I tried on my usual size 8 in the black velvet and was in love! These are a great twist on a classic style of shoe. I do see what some people have mentioned regarding the tongue slipping, but I fixed this in the way that I tied my laces. I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The “wow” factor Fit is good, but the look is impressive. Picture doesn’t do them justice. Get ready for lots of complements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect mix of retro cool and modern comfort ! I was immediately taken in by the soft pink color and lovely texture of the velvet!! I felt the overall comfort of the shoe as soon as I put it on ! It not only looks cute but as ageless as the style is, I also feel this beautiful shoe can be worn by fashionistas of all ages! It's a darling , flirty little accent to make any outfit stylish , whether it's jeans or a dress! Sweet!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Pretty! Love these shoes! I am normally a size 10 and that is what I ordered and it seems like I could have been okay with a 9.5. The shoes are adorable though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, fresh velvet shoe! These are comfy, i get a ton of compliments on these, but that’s not really the point of them. the velvet looks good and they’re iconic of course since they’re Converse. They look awesome with dresses to dress down a little bit with the fancy velvet touch. Only downfall is the velvet on the tongue of the shoe is wearing a little from laces rubbing.
