Gienchi's Super Spiked Sneaks Speak to Our Souls (and Soles)

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

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!
