One of the industry’s most classic designs, perhaps ever, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star this month sees a new counterpart hit the shopfloor: the Chuck Taylor All Star II.
While the initial model, complete with rubber toe cap, white foxing detail and that All Star patch, turns 100 in 2017, the brand’s newbie boasts likewise and more.
‘360 degree comfort’ is now made possible with a Nike Lunarlon sockliner (more impressive than it sounds, so we suspect), a foam padded collar and a non-slip padded tongue, the latter ensuring a more refined fit.
Released next week (28th July), the premium design is available both as a high and low top model, with an all black (sole aside) exterior. Suave.
