Always ones to look ahead to innovate and keep re-inventing themselves, Converse are currently on a roll with new looks for their iconic sneakers. Last month they released the Reflective Print Collection for their new Chuck Taylor All Star II, and this month sees the introduction of their latest range for the Chuck II; The Knit Collection.The new range is inspired by music festivals; the lights, illuminations and creativity that’s seen in them. The sneakers come in six eye-catching colours – volt green, black, roadtrip blue, red, white and spray paint blue – which are combined with woven fabrics to create the unique looks. They’re made of a super thin, tightly interwoven knit material making them quite lightweight and comfortable for all-day wear. The textured exterior adds a lot of dimension and will make them a versatile shoe to suit different environments – music festivals included.
The Converse knit sneakers will be available in four low top and three high top versions and they’d make for a great option if you’re after a classic style with just a bit of extra flair to them. The high top silhouette especially looks slightly sporty with the woven fabric and seems to be a nice hark back to Converse’s athletic origins. Much like the other new generation Converse sneakers, the Chuck Taylor All Star II Knit Collection utilises Nike technology to reset the standards of comfort and quality that we’re used to in casual sneakers. The Lunarlon sockliner provides total foot cushioning and arch support, plus the ultra-soft micro-suede lining allows for breathability, meaning your feet aren’t going to feel gross and muggy by the end of the day. The signature Chuck Taylor All Star II details remain on the outside of the shoe including a fully embroidered All Star ankle patch, high foxing and monochrome matte eyelets.
