I am not a sneaker girl. I adore flats, especially if they are made with red patent leather and make me feel like a chic French girl. However, after seeing model Ali Michael's shoot in the September issue of Teen Vogue, in which she wore a cream pair of Converse All-Stars, and managed to still look feminine, I decided to give the shoes a try. I found these crackled copper All-Stars on the company's website for $86.99, and they ended up at about $101 with tax and shipping. I love them. They add just the right amount of tomboy cool to any outfit... definitely a change for the lover of ballet slippers.
