The world we live in isn’t always black and white, but that hasn’t stopped monochrome fashion becoming one of the runaway trends of recent years.

Having blown up in all corners of the world, the impact of the all-black-everything movement (along with its clean tonal opposite) has been felt right across street fashion, and this season it looks to continue apace. Now, Converse has released the ultimate footwear for followers of this path.


The Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono is the latest development in what was already one of the most versatile sneakers on Earth. Now, in both triple-black and triple-white colorways, the shoe becomes the perfect complement to any committed monochrome wardrobe.

Available in both the iconic high-top and low-cut silhouettes, the sleeker looks and matching tonal stitching of the Chuck II make it ideally suited to complete color blocking. What’s more, with their new Lunarlon footbeds, padded tongue and micro-suede lining, the Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono is comfy enough to wear day-in, day-out.


Just as well, because if your wardrobe only contains one color, now you really only need one shoe to match.

The Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono is available for purchase now from Converse.com and other major footwear retailers.
