Converse Chuck Taylor Updated With GORE-TEX and Duck Camo

Few pairs of the Converse Chuck Taylor are more popular than the shoe when outfitted in camo. Dating back to the ’70s edition in camo from 2014 to other general release pairs in the years that would follow, the American footwear brand continues down said path with a budding pair now riddled in GORE-TEX.

The popular waterproof combative has become more customary in recent years. It’s paired here today with a duck camouflage upper joined by masterful tan laces that accent the base to perfection. A rubberized gum sole unit sits below.

Take a closer look at the Converse Chuck Taylor GT “Camo” below and grab them now at select international retailers like Asia’s Billys.

Converse Chuck Taylor “Tokyo/Osaka” Pack Draws Inspiration from Classic ’80s Colorways

Converse is having one of its better years in recent memory in 2017. They’ve famously partnered with Tyler, The Creator, ASAP Nast and, most recently, J.W. Anderson on a gleaming, glitter-inspired collection. That’s not to mention next year they’ll drop the even more coveted OFF WHITE x Converse Chuck Taylor.

Before that takes place, though, Converse is looking to classic ’80s colorways of the Chuck Taylor All Star to inspire its upcoming “Tokyo/Osaka” pack. Consisting of pairs in orange (Tokyo) and teal green (Osaka), both highlight traditional canvas construction atop an off-white rubber midsole lined with black piping. Both of the Japanese cities have their names stamped at the shoes footbed.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70s “Tokyo/Osaka” Pack drops on December 15 at Converse Japan online and at participating retailers in Tokyo and Osaka.
