NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (May 2, 2011) – Today, Converse Inc. releases the latest collection of Converse Kids eyewear featuring all-new styles and detailed etched designs on the temples.

Converse Kids are going back to school, whether it is elementary or high school; these frames have colorful details and laid back style that will set them apart from their peers. Animal stripes, hounds tooth, tire tread or a cavalcade of stars adorn the temples for a cool surprise of graphic design. Spring hinges, found on all Converse kid’s frames, function to provide essential comfort and strong flexibility.Converse Kids Eyewear 5_11

For girls, the Pick Me is a super subtle cat eye and comes in triple layer acetate that’s etched in a zebra stripe pattern to reveal bright color beneath. Lets Go also has layers of eye catching color, with a ribbon of hounds tooth wrapped around the temple.

Favorites for the guys are the combination metal front and acetate temple Let Me Try, offered in boyish blue with sneaker tread on the temple, and the reverse combination Tell Me, with stamped oversized tread texture for an entirely different look on matte metal.
