    When developing our individual style, we like to start from the ground up — literally, with an awesome pair of foot candy. That’s why we’re stoked that classic sneaker brand Converse has stepped onto the San Francisco shopping scene less than two nights ago! To kick off the launch, a bevy of cool locals posed in the brand’s latest ad campaign, including musical act The She’s, artist Henry Lewis, and shutterbug Andrew Paytner.

    We're guessing they're just as psyched to slip into some chucks at the brand’s only Northern Cali outpost as much as we are. And, it seems Converse really wanted to go big or go home, because the space is a whopping 8,200 square feet — the largest of any brand location — and giving new meaning to the phrase "one size fits all!" Also, to show off those Bay Area roots wherever you go, you can shop the limited edition Chuck Taylor All Star San Francisco collection that comes adorned with S.F. landmarks. For a more personal touch, you could even bring in your own custom-made graphic that the store will screen print on any item — or choose between over 150 shop designs.
