On the rare occasions that I wear sneakers outside the gym, I don't stray far from my favorite Puma Roma sneaks. But, I may make an exception for these hot sale priced shoes. Why? John Varvatos just plain rocks.

Converse by John Varvatos represents the coming together of Converse's classic sneaker silhouette and John Varvatos's rock and roll edge. John is a modern day design legend, having won CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year in 2005 and 2001; the Perry Ellis Award for Menswear in 2000; and the GQ Designer of the Year award in 2007. Varvatos designed for Polo Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein before debuting his eponymous line in 1999, and he most recently made headlines when he purchased the iconic CBGB location in NYC to house his flagship store. How fabulous is that?

This particular sneaker is a reinterpretation of the Converse Jack Purcell Vantage style. It features an all over striped design and patched canvas straps on the sides, which add a funky touch. While supplies last, it can be yours for 56% off retail price.

Love the Converse by John Varvatos look, but not sure this particular sneaker is for you? You check out the funky Vintage Slip Ev in black on sale for $46 (was $95), or the All Star Multi Eyelet Canvas on sale for $51 (was $95).
