Worn by rockstars to frat boys, Converse's Chuck Taylor is timeless, and Converse always finds a way to keep the heralded silhouette relevant no matter what era. To kick off year 2011, this premium black suede with red plaid interior mash-up reigns supreme. Add the black/grey Converse logo and stitches and it's so detail-oriented you need a magnifying glass. Good thing Converse's website has a zoom-in feature so you can view the deets for yourself, oh yeah, and you can buy 'em for a reasonable $70 here.
