We love studs—and not just the cute boy kind. Studs + Converse? That's pretty much perfection in our book. We're huge fans of Bess NYC's studded shoes and sneakers, but recently have been craving a more aggressive spiked look—enter Gienchi's studded Converse All-Stars, perfectly understated street-fab aggro. Sweet!
