A new look
NEW YORK - Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars are receiving their first update since debuting 98 years ago. The idea behind the All Star II is more comfort, Converse said in a recent statement, with durable Tencel canvas, higher tech shock absorption in the footbed, foam padding inside at the ankle, non-slip padded tongues and perforated micro-suede liners along the interior sides. The iconic circle patch is embroidered on and eyelets will be coloured to match the shoe. The new shoe goes on sale today in black, white, red and blue.
