The world's most famous sneaker is undoubtably the Chuck Taylor, and its successor, the Chuck Taylor II continues to follow in its footsteps. Although recreating the iconic sneaker was a huge risk for Converse, the classic silhouette has been maintained and a slightly upgraded, modern shoe was achieved.
Recently, Converse has unveiled the aptly named 'Holiday Collection,' featuring two new colorways to the Chuck Taylor II collection. The 'Thunder' colorway is a dark gray palette that provides an ominous look. The 'Bordeaux,' is the dark red version, that has a warm, deep burgundy finish. Both are appropriate colors for the upcoming holidays and provide a tasteful update to the signature sneaker. The holiday collection will continue the Chuck Taylor II's tradition of comfort with a non-slip tongue and Lunarlon cushioning.
