Converse’s Chuck Taylor sneakers are almost synonymous with classic style and a smooth look, but despite the cemented legacy enjoyed by the silhouette, Converse hasn’t blocked it off from progressive updates – which is where the Converse Chuck Modern draws its inspiration.
The Converse Chuck Modern draws from a classic Chuck Taylor color palette of black, navy, olive, ash grey and deep bordeaux, while revamping the model through usage of new materials in the upper. In place of the Chuck Taylor’s typical canvas construction, sneakerheads will find the upper of the Modern offers a brand-new take in the form of a two-layer mesh upper for depth, dimension, and an ultra-lightweight feel. The midsole will however remain intact as wearers are greeted by a familiar white rubber ride.
The Converse Chuck Modern “Colors” collection is set to release March 3 at select Converse retailers and Converse’s official site.
