Since its debut in 1917, the Chuck Taylor All Star has become one of the world’s most celebrated sneakers, with fans, artists and musicians adopting the brand as a badge of creativity and self-expression.

“The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II is a sneaker that started with one simple notion: obsession,” said Richard Copcutt, Vice President/General Manager of Converse All Star. “We listened and took it to heart that people love their Chucks and want sneakers that are built to enable them to do more. The Chuck II is the full expression of this consumer obsession, staying true to the DNA of the original.”
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II delivers:
Nike Lunarlon sockliner for superior full foot cushioning and arch support
Foam padded collar and non-slip gusseted tongue for 360-degree comfort
A perforated micro suede liner, for breathability during extended periods of wear.

On-trend high foxing
Monochrome matte eyelets
