If there ever was a shoe to perfectly encapsulate the phrase ‘change is good’ it’s the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. The model has slowly been improving since the 30s and its latest revision sees it go down a premium route. Leather and suede sprawl across the upper, with leather repelling any exterior forces on the lateral side while suede hugs the inner. The midsole has also been raised just a smidge – it’s an extra protective measure, but it also adds a unique aesthetic.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star in ‘Egret’ is available now from Kith.
