Converse Opens New Store in NYC With Jim Jones, Q-Tip and More [Pictures]

There’s no doubt that Converse knows how to throw a party. Last night, the brand celebrated the grand opening of its flagship New York location on Broadway between Prince and Spring Streets. The other Chuck Taylor gang did not disappoint, with guest DJ Q-Tip spinning an eclectic mix of soul and old school hip-hop, followed by a crowd moving performance by hometown faves Matt & Kim. Among those attending were actress Gabide Sabide, rapper Jim Jones and Converse spokesperson and NBA Legend Julius Erving.

Located in the heart of Soho the new store is one stop shop for all things Converse, from clothing and accessories to all the Converse footwear we know and love.
