Converse have been our go-to for shoes for years – seriously though, what other style can you wear from a teen straight through to an adult without either getting sick of them or them becoming really innappropriate? Yes, we’re talking to you roman sandles.
To this day, the only issue with Converse has been wearing them in wet weather or to places where you’re going off-track. We can’t count the number of times we’ve put a pair on on a sunny day, to look out the window and see it pouring down just in time for the walk home!
Thankfully, Converse have come to the rescue with their new Counter Climate Shield Canvas Footwear Collection, a new innovative sneaker range that comes in a water repellant canvas with a waterproof neoprene – specifically created to stand up against unpredictable inclement weather, meaning you can now wear your Converse when it’s raining. So ideal.
These new babies are just as comfy as your usual pair of Chucks and they come in a range of colours, so there’s something for everyone. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II, pictured below, combines the enhanced comfort of a Nike Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges. They’ve also added a water repellent Shield Canvas and a gusseted tongue, as well as removing the medial eyelets to make a durable sneaker that is ready for wet and rainy adventures. The sneakers also feature reflective heel webbing and barrel laces for added visibility in low light environments.
