How to style the ever-evolving Chuck Taylor – Pt 2
It’s a milestone celebrated by few, the centennial birthday. Where many brands die out before reaching age 5, there are others set apart to grow in popularity and success as the years go on.
One such brand? None other than Converse. It’s hard to believe it’s been 100 years since the first Chuck Taylor was introduced to the world on a basketball court, and the style has evolved to represent the daring spirit of youth.
Worn by thousands the world over, the Converse Chuck Taylor is the one sneaker silhouette to outlast them all. That’s not to say the style itself hasn’t undergone a few refinements here and there.
Building on the beginning and the sequel, Converse’s next iterations in the Chuck Family evolve the elements we know and love about the Chuck Taylor to adapt styles that blur the boundary between fashion, form and functionality.
Chuck Taylor All Star II
The same timeless silhouette you know and love – but improved for 2017. The Chuck Taylor All Star II has added Nike Lunarlon cushioning for added comfort, and a padded non-slip tongue to avoid it annoyingly bundling in the front of your shoe (we all know those feels). Perfect for summer adventures, team these bad boys with shorts and singlet for your next traverse to a secret beach location.
Chuck Taylor All Star Modern Lux
Any item with the word ‘lux’ in its title immediately grabs our attention. That’s why our attention was piqued when the latest evolution in the Chuck Family – the Chuck Taylor All Star Modern Lux – appeared on our style radar. Crafted out of premium leather, the latest iteration in the iconic silhouette comes in a sophisticated monochromatic colourway – classic black. One for the style trailblazer, this slick shoe is not reserved only for streetwear, think more elevated looks that take you from office to after work drinks. Get out and grab them quick, before they sell out.
