It may have taken Converse close to a century to tinker with the Chuck Taylor DNA, but they undeniably nailed the definition of ‘reimagined classic’ with the Chuck II. A cushier ‘Lunarlon’ ride, improved flexibility and a feather-light sole unit was delivered without any sacrifice to the Chuck’s battle-hardened exterior, and it was enough to earn the Chuck II a deserved place in our Best of the Best 2015 listicle. Following those early tonal releases, Converse is back with a new spin, introducing this series of bright-eyed woven uppers influenced by the illuminating kaleidoscopic light shows found at music concerts. The reinforced knit allows for a wafer-thin construction, creating the lightest and most breathable Chuck II yet.
The Converse Chuck II Knit Collection is available now at select Converse stockists and online at converse.com.au.
