These New Converse Skateboarding Shoes Are Stylishly Functional

Though they come in many different colors and materials, the new Converse skateboarding shoes don’t exactly look too far off from Converse’s classic Chuck Taylor design. These skate shoes, along with lifestyle footwear are a part of Converse’s Fall 2013 CONS Collection, show off the familiar platform-like molded outsole we see on Chucks.

Converse put in special work for the Skateboarding collection. Nike’s Lunarlon sockliner and memory foam are integrated for better performance. They are offered in mid and low-top cuts that are finished in leather and suede for a street-style look.

The lifestyle shoe collection makes a statement with contrasting color tones. It also includes a patriotic heritage piece called PRO BLAZE that comes in red, white and blue. The PRO BLAZE is finished off with blended suede and premium leather detailing.
