Reserve a special section in your closet for these bad boys! They may not play well with your prepped out Sperry’s. With a rock ‘n roll inspired theme, the new Converse by John Varvatos F13 collection uses punk influenced hardware like staples, studs and zippers to give these kicks an attitude adjustment. The collection launches globally July 1.
MENTORS NOTE: Channel your inner rocker and get a pair of these shoes. They’ll add a bit of edge to your look while keeping their cool. For the spiked or stapled shoes (shown above), wear them with a pair of black skinny jeans and a white v-neck or a gray fitted button down shirt. Keep the pants and shirt simple so that the shoes can stand out. Keep accesories (bracelets, watch, multiple necklaces, etc.) to a minimum. All the metal embellishments you need are already on your shoes.
