Okay guys, time to take a deep breathe if you're highly excitable about shoes, specifically of the Converse variety type. These new designs for 2013 are sure to take your breath away.

For their 2013 designs, Converse took inspiration from their previous year's collaboration with John Varvatos. A revamp of the iconic Chuck Taylor's, Jack Purcell's and Cons with a premium, "street-look". Shoes that aren't just made for walking but for making statements with each strut. Studs, zippers and suede are just a few of my favorite things from this line-up.

Allow me to indulge and tackle them further one by one...

Chucks. Zippers, studs, platforms. Who thought that a few tweaks here and there could result in such pure genius?  The new DIY-ish designs takes the trouble out of searching for a place to purchase afforable studs and brings them to you effortlessly with just a single swipe of your credit card! Already a huge fan of their platform variety, the new laides line creepers feature new colors in metallics and pure blacks that knock the socks of my feet.

Jack Purcells on the other hand are taking a rebellious turn with the addittion of dirty worn in soles, printed canvass, camo and gorgeous suede.The new bad boy on the block who still manages to charm us with his "unique smile".

And then we have the Cons. The new collection of skate shoes didnt just get a facelift but an overhaul as well. Cons are now equipped with Lunarlon soles for better cushioning special thanks to its sister company Nike. Aside from that, the new Cons also feature vibrant new colorways.

There. Are you palpitating yet? If the answer is no, now's a good time to start. Presenting, the new Converse Collection for 2013:
