Make Your Own Shredded Converse

Shoeaholics Anonymous Disclosure

I don’t think I could bring myself to spend $128 on these Shredded Converse Chucks. Classic all star chucks ripped and washed to give them a shredded, vintage look. Available in Navy, Off White &/or Black.

Even if I did like the look, one could easily make their own “shredded” look – NY Shoe Spy tells us exactly how to by using a pair of old Converse shoes.  One could even buy a brand new spankin’ pair of Converse All Star Chuck Taylors for around $39.90 and invest the 20 minutes of time to save almost $100 bucks!

  1. it is so distinctive … i like it

  2. I agree – I’m not too sure I could get away with this look. Love converse, but not entirely sold on the shredding…

  3. Converse products are one of best quality in the market. Compered to other brands the difference is easy to be seen. I hope that converse products will be around for many many years
