To say that the Converse “Ready For More” event was a blast would be a complete understatement. In the video above I’ll walk you through the event (a more granular play by play here) and give you a detailed look at the new Converse Chuck II.
The Chuck II sees the iconic Chuck Taylor get its first major change in 98 years. It was an undertaking that Converse did not take likely. They painstakingly set out to improve the sneaker while carefully respecting the admiration that so many have for the original. The result is a sequel that looks very much the same as its predecessor, however, through attention to detail, is very much improved.
It is every bit the Chuck Taylor you know and love. It is simply more premium with it’s embossed eyelets, embroidered ankle patch, textured pinstripes, and gore webbed tongue. It is also more comfortable with it’s new Nike Lunarlon drop-in midsole, memory foam padding, micro-suede lining, premium canvas, and improved fit. Available today, the Chuck Taylor releases in white, blue, red and black – all come in high or low cut options, for $74.99 and $70, respectively.
Converse nailed it. Give them an award.
