Nike’s never ending updates to the original Converse silhouette aren’t impressive because of the type of technology they throw on the old-school sneaker, but the fact that they always remain immediately recognizable as Converse All Stars. Take a look at the new Converse Urban Utility Hikers and you’ll see what we mean.
These sneakers feature the same basic form of the popular lace-ups – but instead of the classic canvas upper, they boast a mix of military-inspired nylon fabrics, reflective detailing, and a fully waterproof seam sealed Gore-Tex membrane. That special technology paired with the unique elastic closure system not only gives the shoe a tactical look, but it makes the shoes all the more reliable for wearing during the winter. Right now you can pick up the sneakers in either Khaki or a more out-there Neon Orange colorway.
