A shoe so dope, it took almost 100 years to make to the second version. Today we’re discussing the Converse All Star Chuck Taylor II. Over the weekend, Converse blew the lid off one of its biggest projects in nearly a century, the Converse All Star Chuck Taylor II. Featuring a slew of tech upgrades for added comfort, durability and style, the Second Coming of the Chuck Taylor is long overdue. Lucky for us the shoe arrives at a time when comfort technology is better than ever. And most importantly, the release comes without ruining the original beloved design.
What Makes the Converse All Star Chuck Taylor II better?
The answer is simple: everything. Thanks to Nike, Converse’s parent company, both the low-top and high-top renditions of the shoe feature Lunarlon cushioning. That should add tons of comfort and versatility to the shoe. We loved the OGs, but can all agree they could get comfortable after a day of walking, skating, sitting…anything.
And the Lunar insole isn’t the only upgrade. There’s also a foam-padded collar and non-slip gusseted tongue in the mix this time around. That should add comfort as well as keeping those pesky tongues in place. You know that’s driven you nuts a time or two. Additionally a perforated micro-suede liner is featured to increase breathability during extended periods of wear. Throw in an extra-durable, premium canvas upper and the Chuck Taylor’s officially all grown up.
Where Can I Get My Own?
Good news: this isn’t a release that requires you to wait until Christmas or some crap like that. You can grab a pair of the Hi’s or the Low’s (ox) at the Converse online store right now in the four depicted colorways. The suggested retail prices are $70 USD (lows) and $75 USD (highs). Some styles are already sold out, but there’s bound to be plenty available — unlike those Yeezy Boosts…
