The Converse One Star is a classic shoe silhouette that the brand is continuously evolving. Just last week, the company collaborated with Footpatrol on a special edition of the One Star that featured embroidered Footpatrol branding and custom-printed laces among its other updated elements. And this week Converse is presenting a revamped version of the shoe via the One Star Perforated Leather.

The shoe features matte leather with small perforations that are intended to offer added breathability. Other components include a vulcanized rubber outsole, an Ortholite insole for optimum cushioning and the classic star logo design typical to the sneaker.
