Converse Unveils the Chuck Taylor All Star II
It’s about time that Converse reworked the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star and they’ve done just that. The sneaker was first developed in 1971, when it triggered a new era of footwear design, style and technology. It also set the standards of a sneaker culture that has become the foundation for many modern streetwear and activewear collections.
The newly unveiled successor features the same classic detailing (white foxing, a rubber toe-cap and an All-Star patch) and sports some upgrades, including a perforated micro-suede liner and non-slip padded tongue. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II is a modern classic made from Tencel Canvas. It comes in four colorways: white, black, red, and blue.
The Chuck Taylor II will hit the market on Tuesday the 28th of July at select retailers and online at the Converse website.
