Little Threads: Converse and Crayola Join Forces

Shoes that color us happy


We first started wearing Chuck Taylors in college as an outward manifestation of our inner creative angst (yes, with thick flannels and ripped jeans).

So imagine our delight when we discovered the kid-size collaboration between Converse and Crayola — an equally compelling expression of creativity, but in much sunnier hues.

The selection of mid-top sneakers combines Crayola-inspired colors (Indian teal/jasmine green/fiery red; beetroot purple/dewberry/blue radiance) that complement the wardrobes of most minis. A padded strap across the top helps keep laces in place.

Snatch up a pair soon: the collection is a limited edition.

Available at kidsfootlocker.com, $41-$52.
