    I wanted to know if the Converse store will have any upcoming events in July and August. I will be traveling to Barbados and staying for 2 months for the summer. I am a Converse fanatic and I would love to stop by while I am there and pick up a few things at the store. I’ve been searching for the right yellow converse and maybe they would have them in their store. Thanks!
