The new Converse VLTG is the revival of the original basketball performance sneaker, which debuted in 1995 and was known as the Voltage.
Nature and its electric occurrences were the inspiration behind the original design. With a bold chevron pattern and shooting-star logo, the sneaker instantly became a piece of iconography typical of the ’90s.
The updated classic maintains its signature leather upper, zig-zag pattern and shooting-star logo – and Melody Mfeka is seriously impressed. She’s a sneaker kween, fashion killa and Converse influencer. Follow her visual style cues and you’ll be slaying in the Converse VLTG.
On her personal style
With warmer weather, her go-to style staples are crop tops, shorts and baggy sportswear. ‘The release of the Converse classics made me realise that I was doing great, but I’m about to do a whole lot better, sis,’ said Melody.
Should you invest in the Converse VLTG?
‘Voltage is the investment your bank won’t tell you about, but I’m here to tell you that you’ll be missing out on striking strut if you don’t. I’ve never been happier about a shoe, to be honest, and I live in sneakers, so best believe me. I stan for a converse classic,’ said Melody.
The Voltage Collection is actually perfect for summer
Melody says, ‘They are about to be the “boss of the road”, as we’d say in Durban.’ Comfortable, fresh kicks to match the electric mood of summer is something we all look for and ‘Converse classics embody all of that. I mean, what else can you ask for?’
