CHUCK + RUBBER BATTLE THE ELEMENTS

Your favorite seasonal Converse Rubber high tops returns this Spring, in a perennial classic Chuck Taylor All Star low top.  The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber Low Top sneakers are built for water repellence during the rainy spring season.

The rubber upper of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber Low Top is backed with the signature canvas fabric and the gusseted tongue allows for protection from rain and puddles. And this time, Converse added a new molded EVA sock liner for additional comfort when trekking through the elements. If needed, remove the sock liner, ring out the water or throw it in the wash for a good clean. The collection is offered in bold, monochromatic, all-over colors of red, parchment, yellow and black – tongue, eyelet, laces, logos, everything.

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber Low Top will be available starting Thursday, February 25 at Converse retail stores and Converse.com for a suggested price of $60 USD.
