Change is hard. Especially when you’re messing with an iconic design. But if you want to see progress you need to be open to change. Under Nike’s watch, Converse’s Chuck All-Star sneakers are slowly transforming with the times.
The new Chuck II Shield Canvas High Top ($90) repels water with its Counter Climate technology, cushions soles with Nike Lunarlon and sports reflective accents for that extra special touch. Get them in white or black. We prefer the white with the neon orange; because Dapper Guide colors. But neon green rubber paired with the black is slick, too.
Will they get dirty? Of course, but damn it if a pair of Chucks don’t look better worn than fresh.
