Even icons need some updating once in a while. Converse is taking that philosophy to heart as it takes the wraps off the new Polartec x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star 1970s, a weather resistant version of the sneaker that’s somehow stayed hip since your dad wore them.

The headline is here is the Polartec weatherization technology that’s being applied to shoes like these for the first time ever. A Polartec Power Shield Pro membrane is inserted between the outer canvas and inner tricot lining, and the result is said to be a sneaker that repels water while still offering excellent breathability. Choose from the bright Clematis Blue high-top or low-slung Gargoyle Gray ox, each with a reverse-color tongue, red eyelet, and turquoise d-ring eyelet. $110 gets you dry and stylish.
