Sneaker trends come and go (it’s not clear if we’ll all be wearing Vejas in 2023), but a black Converse Chuck Taylor high-top will likely always be in style. As Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens wrote a few months ago: “It’s an off-day when at least three of my co-workers aren’t also wearing Converse.” She says she’s “tried to wear sneakers that are more dad-like, more now-feeling.” But “every time, I end up taking those off and slipping back into one of my four pairs of Converse. They just agree better with all the short pants I wear.” Right now, these puppies are on sale at Nordstrom for 20 percent off. The low-top version is on sale, too.
