Global Trendsetters: In Argentina, The Ladies Go Loco For Converse Chucks

Off the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York, you'll rarely see such a fashionable people as the residents of Buenos Aires. Porteños, as they're called, have an impressive eye for style, and watching these beauties strut their stuff in their cutting-edge wares can make even the swankiest American girl feel, well, a bit underdressed. But if you can't beat 'em, join 'em–at least, that's my motto when it comes to fashion. So what's taking Argentina by storm right now? Converse sneakers.

These classic shoes will never really go out of style for good–but they certainly have their ups and downs. And it looks like right now, Chucks are on the upswing in Argentina. After a local band featured a pair of Converse on their cover last year, everyone's started wearing–and, more importantly, talking about wearing–these All-Star sneakers.

Fortunately, the shoes hitting the streets look a little better than these worse-for-the-wear zapatillas. In fact, Converse got word of their popularity and has flooded the Argentine market with Chucks of every color, make, and model. You can do pretty well in the States, too, though. 

The porteñas tend to rock their Converse with skinny jeans, sort of like Giselle here:

You get the idea. Chucks look great with skinny jeans and a cool top. And if the Argentines are doing it, you know it works.
