For the first time ever, Converse has re-designed its world-famous Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker incorporating new features to improve its comfort. The revived sneaker preserves the same look of the classical All Star, with its white cap and the remarkable All Star Patch. However, the new design includes a Nike Lunarlon sole, delivering full foot cushioning and arch support; monochrome matte eyelets; and a perforated micro-suede liner for breathability during extended periods of wear.

Richard Copcutt, vice president and general manager of Converse, stated: “We listened and took it to heart that people love their Chucks and want sneakers that are built to enable them to do more. The Chuck II is the full expression of this consumer obsession, staying true to the DNA of the original.”

As of the 28th July, the Chuck Taylor All Star II will be available at Converse retail stores, the brand's web shop and at selected retailers worldwide (such as Snipes, Zalando or Bodega) in the colors black, red, blue and white. The low-top version costs €75 / $70 USD, the hi-top style retails at €80 / $75 USD.
