Throughout the course of Converse’s history, Chuck Taylor’s have received quite a bit of variation, especially after Nike’s acquisition of the brand. We’ve seen plenty in the form of hi-top and low-top variants that played into the hearts and souls of every style. Now, the new Descents look to give the once basic Chucks a more rugged appearance.

Officially dubbed the Chuck Taylor All Star Descent Low Top, the new sneaker features an EVA sockliner for more cushioning, a rubber outsole with extended sidewalls and an aggressive traction pattern providing wearers with increased traction and durability. Meanwhile, a set of D-ring eyelets provide for a secure and close-quarters closure so no matter what your outdoor activity of choice, the Descents won’t be slipping off your feet. The new sneaker also features a suede upper, replacing the iconic canvas build and are available in several color options including black, charcoal and burnt umber. A perfect addition to the collection of Converse Chuck Taylor’s already available. Priced at $75. [Purchase]
