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 21.
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 LOVE I love these shoes! I got the 8h because I wanted them and I typically wear an 8. For my foot, the 8h is fine. Maybe that’s my size and I didn’t realize it. I got the black and they look very nice. The pink would have been lovely but they were sold out. The velvet is a nice twist to the classic converse.

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.
