Chuck Taylors are undoubtedly iconic as the silhouette that pretty much put Converse on the map. But the Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star, and Fastbreak are receiving a formidable militarized makeover with an obvious nod toward their ’50s roots through the Mountain Club Collection.
The Converse classics will see an addition to their timeless silhouettes via the inclusion of GORE-TEX waterproofing technology and some new style cues, allowing them to traverse more terrain than ever before. They’ll feature stylized, oversized treading, DWR-coated uppers, uncured rubber overlays on the toe and heel, gusseted tongues, and ankle straps to keep them secure during prolonged outings. This profound throwback to the original 1950 Converse military boot is a play on both utility and style and will be available November 8 through the Converse online store and select retailers.
