After 98 years, Converse decided to redesign what is arguably the most iconic sneaker in the world. The Chuck Taylor All Star has had quite the history since it debuted in 1917. For much of the 20th Century, Chuck Taylors were popular basketball shoes. Now, Chucks represent a type of retro cool. Converse is aware of the image their Chuck Taylors has cultivated over the past 98 years, they knew it would be a monumental task in changing their iconic sneaker, yet Converse succeeded, didn’t sacrifice anything, while bringing their shoes to the 21st century.
The redesign of the Converse Chuck Taylors II includes: a Lunarlon Sockliner, a Padded Non-Slip Tongue and Microsuede Lining.
The Lunarlon Sockliner provides cushioning and support for your feet. It makes the Converse Chuck Taylors II more comfortable and adds a bounce to your step.
The Padded Non-Slip Tongue keeps your tongue in place so you won’t have to keep untying your shoes to pick up the tongue.
The new Microsuede Lining for the Chuck Taylors II allows your foot to breathe easier and will keep your shoes from smelling so bad.
If you’ve ever liked the style/look of the Converse Chuck Taylors, yet found them uncomfortable, give the Converse Chuck Taylors II a look. And if you are already a fan of Chucks buying these redesigned sneakers is a no-brainer.
