Any kid who grew up sporting Chucks remembers at some point making the mistake of wearing them out in the rain. It didn’t take long to realize that the classic kicks simply are not made for water. Or at least they weren’t before the Chuck Taylor All Star 100 GORE-TEX Hi’s were announced.
Due out in early fall of this year, these classic sneakers will feature the most popular waterproofing technology out there integrated directly directly into its canvas upper. Honestly, this is one of the better iterations on the sneakers we’ve seen – and believe us when we say we’ve seen a lot of them. While other waterproof versions of this sneaker look more like full-on rain boots, these retain the classic Chuck look that made us fall in love with them in the first place. So if you are looking to keep that old school vibe while staying dry this fall, these are the perfect sneakers for you. Look for them this September.
