CONVERSE GETS COOLER FOR SUMMER

As festival season heats up, Converse cools down with the new women’s Chuck Taylor All Star Crochet collection. The collection promotes breathability with lining only at the heel and toe, making these the perfect sneakers for summer activities.

Designed with a unique upper of interlocking loops of canvas, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Crochet will keep feet light and cool, whether walking the hot city streets, biking the boardwalks, or dancing around music festivals.  These styles are available in classic staple colors of black, white and cream.

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Crochet collection will be available beginning Thursday, March 31, 2016.
