Chuck Taylors have gone on to become the most iconic sneakers of all time over the past 98 years, and for the first time in this nearly 100-year time frame, the famous footwear label is giving the classic silhouette a slight makeover. Meet the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II.
Upon first glance, these kicks don’t look any different than the original offerings, and that’s because they aren’t – on the outside at least. It’s like they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Nike has decided that it was time to update the comfort though, and have added the brand’s cushy Lunarlon midsole to the mix, a super soft micro-suede perforated lining, padded non-slip tongue, and premium canvas construction for high quality touch and texture. The sneakers are gearing up for a Tuesday, July 28th release date, and will retail for $70 with plenty of colors to choose from. [Purchase]
