How to Fold Down a Converse

The classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars high-tops began with a simple design -- seven eyelets, a coloured or plain canvas exterior and a white canvas interior. Since its inception, there have been special knee-high variations, versions with a different coloured interior and a "Two Fold" style with an interior set of eyelets underneath the external set of eyelets. If you have original Converse high-tops or any other high-top version, you can fold down the excess fabric to make the shoes more comfortable or to show off the special features.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Put on the shoes.

  2. 2

    Lace your shoes up to the fifth hole. If wearing knee-high Converse, lace up to the seventh hole.

  3. 3

    Tie your shoes normally.

  4. 4

    Fold down the fabric from the top of the shoe, the same way you would fold down a shirt collar or sock. If wearing the "Two Fold" style, you can leave the interior set of eyelets up or fold them down, depending on your preference.

  5. 5

    Fold the extra length of tongue down over your laces.
