For the first time in nearly 98 years, Converse has redesigned its iconic high-tops. The original Converse Chucks were designed in the 1920s and have remained relatively the same ever since that time. Now the company has finally released an updated version of the iconic sneakers in the form of the 'Converse Chuck II.'
While the original Converse Chucks were largely intended for casual wear, the Chuck II is designed for activity. The Chuck II relies on Nike's Lunarlon technology to provide improved support and comfort for the arches of your foot. The inside lining of the shoe has also been upgraded to include a micro-suede fabric that is more breathable. Even the exterior of the shoe has received an upgrade in the form of more durable fabric.
Of course, not everything about the Chuck II differs from the original design. The new sneakers still retain the same classic and familiar silhouette as the iconic high-tops.
