The Converse All Star Chuck '70 Polartec shoes are the first time a sneaker has been outfitted with Polartec's "weatherization technology."

Polartec Power Shield Pro is a weather-resistant membrane that is lightweight, breathable and waterproof. The Chuck '70 Polartec sneakers have the Polartec fabric inserted between the shoes inner and outer linings, making them wearable all year-round in the sun, rain and snow. And because the Polartec fabric is breathable, feet remain dry and comfortable.

The All Star Chuck '70 Polartec's come in two versions: high-top and low-cut. The high-top version is colored clematis blue, while the low-cut sneaker is colored garoyle gray ox. Both are stylish and comfortable, and thanks to the lightweight Polartech lining, neither have to sacrifice style for the sake of ruggedness.
