Seeing stars.

The Converse One Star has been a street style staple since the ’90s, and in 2018 the throwback silhouette is still dominating. Seen everywhere from fashion weeks to skate and music scenes, the versatile sneaker is showing no signs of slowing down.

This versatility has allowed the One Star to become a leader of the pack, worn by those who prefer to challenge the status quo.

You don’t have to look perfect to rock a One Star, because nobody is. Instead, Converse encourages you to do things your own way.

The latest instalments see the Premium Suede delivered in fresh new pastel shades, a pinstripe pack and re-issues of staple colourways. In celebration of the shoe of the moment, we’ve rounded up a few local Converse wearers to show off their One Stars.

For work I sell skateboards and double as a medical receptionist.
When I’m not working I’m skateboarding, travelling the world and taking photographs while doing so.
I started skating when I was 19, I’m now 23.
The best places I’ve skated are New York City, LA and San Francisco. Three of skateboarding’s meccas.
I look up to Nora Vasconcellos. She’s an extremely talented skateboarder and an amazing role model
for female skateboarders.
My style is casual and comfortable – things I can skate in, but still look cute while doing it.
Up next for me is a two-month skate trip with my boyfriend around Europe and at the moment I’m working on an all-female Melbourne skate video.
Individuality is so important, I’d rather stand out than follow.

I’m a princess.
When I’m not working I’m normally getting drunk.
I’d describe myself as an all ’round legend.
I’m most inspired by my friends and the important people in my life.
My parents always told me to clean up after myself. Most of the time I still don’t (sorry Luke).
My style is my own. Just a bunch of friend’s brands (which are all amazing) and other brands I fall in love with.
Up next for me is travel. I have a few trips booked this year and I’m wanting to book more.
Individuality means being yourself.
In my spare time I like to do as little as possible.
This year I’ll hopefully find a new job.
Creativity is using your imagination.

When I’m not working I’m working out.
I’m most inspired by Tasmin Henry-Fullalove.
My parents always told me to use my manners.
Up next for me is holidays.
At the moment I’m working on a tan.
I’m most comfortable when Tasmin isn’t yelling at me.
In my spare time I play with my pussy.
This year I’ll get older.
My most embarrassing moment was when I booked to go on holidays with a group of friends and booked two weeks earlier.
I’m most proud of booking that holiday two weeks earlier.
Couples who dress together stay together.

Celeste Mountjoy
@filthyratbag
I’m an artist.
I’d describe my art as fun to draw.
I started drawing when I was three years old.
My career highlight has been when my boss at a pizza shop told me that my art won’t always sell but pizza will.
I’m inspired by my mum.
My mum always told me to put some clothes on and don’t be stupid.
Up next for me is learning to cook more foods than just pasta.
At the moment I’m working on having furniture in my apartment.
I’m most comfortable when I’m in bed.
Individuality means the quality or character of a particular person, or thing that distinguishes them from others of the same kind.
This year I’ll put some clothes on and not be stupid.
My most embarrassing moment was the last five to 10 years of my life.
In five years I’ll be back at the pizza shop.

I’m a producer/vocalist/songwriter.
The key component in my music is the singing. It’s what brings all the different influences together.
I draw inspiration from a lot of styles and try weave it into something that feels like me.
I’m most grateful for the challenges I’ve been given in my career, just as much as the opportunities so far. Everything is perpetually moving up and down like a wave. And I’m just surfing it enjoying the beauty and absurdity (forgive the cliché).
Right now I have just finished mixing/mastering a six-track release which I started working on last year. Now I need to move onto doing the finishing touches to the album-length collection of tracks I have been working on.
Up next for me is sharing all the music I’ve been making under the table. Touring.
I look up to previous generations who were able to get around and not get lost without Google Maps.
I’m most comfortable when I forget my name lost in a bender.
Creativity is like a well to tap.
