Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II

By  | 

Converse is one of the oldest and most respected footwear lines of all time. They hold one of the greatest shoes in history in the Chuck Taylor All Star. Chuck Taylor’s first debuted in 1917 designed for basketball and was adopted as the NBA shoe but over time it become national icon that swept the nation. Kids from 40s through the 70s grew up where if you didn’t have a pair of chucks then you weren’t the coolest kid on the block. The classic shoe was one of the main attributes in the iconic grease look in the movie Grease and also seen on the feet of Marty McFly in Back To The Future. Even today, Chuck Taylor’s can be seen almost everywhere and for the first time in 98 years they will be given a sequel. Since Nike bought Converse in 2003 they left the Chuck Taylor untouched, but now they will be giving the All Star new material that makes the shoe more comfortable and using the same technology they used for many of their basketball performance shoes. The only flaw of the classic was comfort and Nike has fixed this problem by inserting a Lunarlon sock liner. Lunarlon has been used on many of Nike’s basketball shoes like the new Nike Hyperdunk 2015 and the Nike Air Max 1. This will be first time ever the Chuck Taylor All Star has been changed or altered. The classic All Star will be sold in small quantities for the price tag of 70$ and comes in the mid-top and the low featuring black, blue, red, and white. So grab this amazing sequel quickly before the Grease mob grabs them all and check out the images & video below.  Images & Video via Converse
