Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II

01. Also available in blue.

Words

It's been a long time coming, but Converse have finally updated one of the most iconic shoes ever made. In production since 1917, the Chuck Taylor has become a part of most people's lives in one way or another. This summer the US sneaker brand have appointed the model with a Lunarlon sockliner, micro-suede interior, premium canvas construction and a padded non-slip tongue. The aesthetic of the shoe remains relatively unchanged, with the subtle injections of innovation somewhat hidden within. While I haven't tried a pair on yet, it seems as though the upgrade has been a successful one.

Converse CT 70 Ox Egret/Tan

–01. Leather upper and lining.

Words

Since Converse introduced their 1970s line of Chuck Taylor All Stars, I’ve greatly enjoyed how simple they’ve kept it, while still rolling out some totally unique and sometimes daring special versions each season. This leather low-top model is rendered in a muted monochromatic colour palette and certainly splices these two approaches with the addition of a leather toecap and rawhide laces.

Converse Jack Purcell Signature

—01. Two-ply duck canvas upper.

Words

This month Converse are launching an updated and upgraded version of the Jack Purcell. The simple sneaker has long been an iconic style, but this premium edition, which – to name a handful of the 18 new features and benefits – includes a two-ply duck canvas upper and an Ortholite insole embedded with Nike Zoom Air Technology, is a welcome addition to the brand's offering that is likely to be a huge success.

Converse Addict Chuck Taylor – Black Suede

01

Image

—01. Japanese exclusive.

Words

It's been a couple of seasons since Converse Addict released a shoe that made the overseas purchase worthwhile. The latest edition of the low top Chuck Taylor comes in a black suede, which feels closer to a nubuck in person. The thick Vibram sole provides superior cushion and comfort, and you have the option between black or white laces.

Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor Suede All Stars

01. Portrait Grey Ox.
02. Black Hi.

Words

It would be difficult to argue that the 1970s Chuck Taylor models haven't been a huge success for Converse. After only a year and a half on the market, they've quickly become the go-to shoe for men and women wanting a more premium All Star option. This fall is the first time they've released suede versions of the style outside of their First String program, with two colours now arriving at select retailers.

Converse 3-Panel Chuck Taylor 1970 Ox

01

Image

—01. Canvas uppers.

Words

While not as understated as the numerous solid colour '70s Chucks out there, this red, white and blue version might be the right choice for those that appreciated the ‘stars and stripes’ model released earlier this year, but felt they couldn’t quite pull them off. Slightly more wearable than those, the tricolour design feels simple enough but is sure to attract a little more attention than standard editions.

Neighborhood for Converse 1970s All-Star Chuck Taylor

01

—01. Released today.

Words

The Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor releases have been quick to sell, and for good reason. But I would expect this collaboration with Neighborhood to sell especially fast. The all white sole paired with blue suede and a subtle woven heel detail make for a good-looking, easy to wear shoe.
