Summer shoe selection on point.

Words by

Just when you thought you couldn’t love Converse anymore, the iconic brand is serving up another delicious treat, adding two brand new colours to the Chuck Taylor All Star II collection.

The Chuck IIs will now be available in two new colourways, bold grey ‘Thunder’ and striking maroon ‘Bordeaux’. And with summer creeping a little closer each day, Converse’s timing couldn’t be more on point.

These babies are your go-to holiday sneaker, designed to meet the demands of the creative lifestyle of Chuck lovers everywhere. They feature new and especially-durable details including Nike lunarlon sockliner, a nonslip padded tounge, super soft micro-suede lining and a premium canvas. As well as Converse’s natural knack for balancing perfect colour and versatility, exterior details on the Chuck II's include on-trend high foxing, monochrome matte eyelets, tonal pinstripes and a statement embroidered All Star Patch.

The all-new, seasonal colours will be available from tomorrow October 1 at only $120 a pop from Converse's Melbourne Central Flagship store, online and selected Hype DC, Foot Locker and Platypus stores across the country.
