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 3.4 out of 5 by 15.
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 4 out of 5 by from Super cute but runs small These are super cute. Love the pink color. I was worried the velvet would look cheap but it's really nice. The only caution I'd offer is on sizing. Although I'm always a size 7 in chucks in this particular style I had to go down a half size. I think it must be the fabric. Once you get the right size they're super cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute, but metal eyelet for shoelaces already detached These are so so cute. The velvet is so nice and the perfect shade of pink. They look exactly like the pictures. I really like them but just after a few wears, the top eyelet like detached and slides around on the laces now. I'm disappointed about that and I'm not quite sure how to fix that. But other than that, they fit like every other pair of converse I've had.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not velvet Though the black high top sneakers are advertised as "velvet" they look and feel like satin which is not what I was looking for at all. Very disappointing, not cute, and since they were on sale, not returnable. Expect better from my favorite online retailer, Madewell!
