I love it when old companies put real effort into keeping classics alive in the modern age! Converse has announced a new shoe, an all-new redesign of the classic Converse Chuck Taylors.
The new shoes look nearly identical to the classic Chucks, but they've been completely rebuilt from the ground up with Nike technology so the new Chucks are far more comfy to walk around in all day.
When I first read this I was a bit hesitant about this idea of Nike ravaging the classic Converse formula. As it turns out, Nike bought Converse in 2003 after it went bankrupt, effectively saving the company. So without Nike, Chucks wouldn’t actually still exist.
The new shoes look like they stay true to the classic Chuck Taylor formula while being a whole heck of a lot more comfortable. I'm excited to try on a pair of these
