Decades of perfection needs no improvement.

Ages: Teen, Young Adult, Adult
Gender: Male
Clothing Category: Everyday, Athletic, Career

Made by request for Panther559. I hope my creation met your expectations.

I've been out of the loop for a while so I thought I'd drop by with an offering.

Note: There is a YA/Adult female version of these sneakers available for those who are interested.

Update 11-24-12: Sneakers now have four recolorable areas instead of three. I've also made some improvements to the sneakers in general.

Footwear has four recolorable areas:
Channel 1 - Sneakers
Channel 2- Top of sneakers and stitching
Channel 3 - Laces and background in back of the sneakers
Channel 4 - Front buffer and center line of the sneakers




Since the sneaker only has three color channels I included six copies to offer those who are interested color options for the eyelets. The colors are:

1. Original
2. Black
3. White
4. Blue
5. Red
6. Gold

There is a seventh copy that doesn't allow one to change the color of the stitching on the sneaker. I added this to accommodate those who want to
change the front and side sole of the sneaker without changing the stitching on the shoes. This style comes with the original eyelets only. Enjoy.

As requested by kotylol, I have added Customizable Converse packages in which Formal Wear is included as a clothing category option.
These files have been renamed as follows:

Young Adult/Adult - TLC_ChuckTaylor-Converse+
Teen - TLC_ChuckTaylor-Converse+-Teen

Important: Please choose only one version from each age level of this creation as they use the same ID in the game.
Using both files for each age level will cause conflict within your game.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I Sure Have
Yes RoqueTheElf,

I have thought about making them for teen, young adult/adult females, at minimum. but, in order to do that I would need to modify the mesh so that it can be used for females. Currently, high top sneakers are only available for teen and young adult/adult males via EA. I am not practiced in meshing to be confident in altering and creating a new mesh for this project. The same would apply for toddlers to children because their feet are much smaller than teens and adults. If I can successfully create a mesh period for The Sims 3 I'd say some of my previous projects would be re-visted to make them for others. Thanks so much for the kudos. Enjoy the sneakers.

I was so excited when I saw this then I saw it is male only... But I know game hackers. There's plenty resources to make this for females if a couple people pool their knowledge and skill. =/ Especially since there are literally no good shoes for females. =(

WolfSpirit62, I am really sorry that I haven't posted a pair of Converse for females. Thing is, EA did not create a high top version of these sneakers for females. In order to make the sneakers for women I would need to create a mesh that can be worn by female sims. Preferably the same mesh that was used for these sneakers but altered for female sizes. Unfortunately, I do not have the ability to do this at this time.
