UPDATE: It's here! Head to Converse.com.au now to purchase!
Let's be straight, the Chuck II doesn't get a whole lot of love in the sneaker scene and, personally, we think it's deserving of a little more. In the creation of the Chuck II, Converse took the original Chuck's 100-year-old silhouette and gave it a full overhaul in the comfort stakes, while still retaining the iconic kick's timeless outward appearance – no easy feat! In a move that's sure to earn the re-worked classic a little more cred amongst sneakerheads, Converse have just unveiled their first collaboration for the Chuck II, partnering with OG graf-head Futura. The godfather of abstract graffiti has lent his signature style to both hi-top and ox make-ups, each equipped with weather resistant rip-stop uppers and reflective laces. Both make-ups will be available from February 1st through Converse.com.au, Hype DC and selected Converse stockists globally.
