Converse updates the Chuck Taylor for the first time.
How does Converse improve on greatness? First of all, what is considered “greatness?” For Converse, greatness can be described as selling over a billion pairs of the iconic Chuck Taylor’s to date, with an estimated two pairs sold every second. Surprisingly, Converse has pulled off the impossible with the introduction of the newly evolved Chuck II – a shoe that has yet to be updated, until today.
Retaining its most identifiable exterior features, the Chuck II boasts the famous All Star patch, along with a rubber toecap and raised white foxing detail on a tonal midsole whilst also incorporating a Lunarlon sockline interior – Nike technology. Although it may not seem to be much in terms of upgrades, this makes a significant difference to the sneakers comfort and breathability during extended periods of wear. Additional features include a premium canvas upper, tonal eyelets and laces, as well as elastic straps attached to the footbed to avoid the previous problem of tongue slipping.
The Chuck II offering arrives in colour hues red, white, navy and black, with prices ranging from £55 for Lows and £60 for Hi-tops. Be sure to add the release date July 28th onto your calendar, but in the meantime, visit the Converse website to shop their current selection of Chuck Taylor’s.
