Because spring is notoriously rainy.

Spring is notoriously rainy and Converse knows that. 

The footwear fave has dropped the next part of its Counter Climate collection, and it’s all about rubber.

The 2016 Counter Climate Rubber footwear line delivers sneakers in a range of colours, each treated to keep your feet dry and comfortable. It’s the same Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II silhouette you love, with the addition of a transparent rubber overlay, allowing the sneaker to breathe while also repelling water.

But that’s not the only trick Converse has up its sleeve. The Rubber collection also spans apparel for both men and women. The collection sees a rubber poncho for the ladies and a rubber fishtail jacket for the fellas, ready to keep you dry from head to toe.

Both the Counter Climate footwear and apparel lines land today, exclusive to the Converse Melbourne Central Flagship store, Werribee Pacific, Northland and online.
