The offering comes in Black, White, Blue, Red and Black Monochrome.

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Kids will be available at Converse retail stores and online at Converse.com beginning Friday, April 29. The hi-top will retail for a suggested retail price of $45-$65 USD with the low-top retailing between $40-$60 USD.
