What We’re Saying: Before we know it, it'll be time to break out the boots for fall and winter. If you're in the market for a new pair — especially one for all your outdoor adventure needs — look no further than Converse's forthcoming collaboration with F/CE., which features a badass technical boot in the QAK CP GORE-TEX Hi.
Offered in a neutral grey colorway, the F/CE. x Converse QAK CP GORE-TEX Hi is designed to make you even more active. The silhouette is lined with waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX fabrics to keep you dry no matter the activity. A detachable belt component wraps around the entire foot keeping it secure, while the wide opening provides easy on and off. The durability of the shoe is further enhanced thanks to a damage protector at the toe that is made from waterproof suede.
While out for all-day excursions, a built-in TPU shank in the midsole provides you with ample cushioning and stability, in addition to high rebound, while an open cell urethane cup insole improves both cushioning and breathability. Lastly, the QAK CP GORE-TEX Hi is outfitted with a rugged outsole featuring a deep groove design and anti-slip properties for superior grip on all surfaces.
While more than capable of handling all types of mountain adventure, F/CE. and Converse made the QAK CP GORE-TEX for urban exploration, too. The shoe is undoubtedly stylish enough to sport simply gallivanting around town. If you're into the design, you'll have the chance to purchase when it becomes available next month through select Converse retailers.
