After 98 years, Converse is changing the design of its classic Chuck Taylor shoe, all in the name of comfort.

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II will feature technology borrowed from parent company Nike, including Nike’s Lunarion foam, extra arch support and a non-slip tongue with micro-suede liner for more breathability.

Change is in little details like these as the central aesthetic of the shoe remains unchanged, with the signature Converse All-Star patch still prominent on the sides of each shoe.


At $75 for high-tops and $70 for low-tops, the Chuck II rings in for $15 more than the original Chucks. Converse Chuck II will hit retail stores July 28.
