Converse battles weather head-on with "The New Counter Climate Collection"
I have been wearing Chuck Taylors during my college days. I got around 10 pairs during those years, and some brands of which accumulated to 25 pairs. You would never see me on a platform, sandals or wedges. My source of comfort is my ever reliable Converse Chucks or Jack Purcell. I could dressed up any outfit with a white Purcell for an entire week. It became my fashion staple since then. It goes around with everything not to mention they are comfortable with or without socks. There, now you know!
You can wear your chucks now even if the weather is unpredictable, with the launch of the THE NEW COUNTER CLIMATE COLLECTION, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas.
Fear no more, the sneaker with water repellent canvas and waterproof neoprene comes to the rescue!
