Launching this Fall/Winter 2016, Chuck II Leads Converse Footwear Against the Wet Weather With Canvas, Leather and Rubber
‘Tis the season of wet weather once again and my favorite footwear brand Converse is here to give us the perfect gear for the wind and rain as it presents The Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear Collection. A few weeks ago I was priviledged to take a peek of this new collection with my fellow bloggers. We were ecstatic as it features an array of classic sneaker designs with premium weatherized features. True to its name, it provides the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts while focusing on the essential weather-beating benefits.
The trendy sneaker collection shows bold mix of colors and materials including water repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene. Divided into three unique categories: Shield Canvas, Leather and Rubber– these collections are intended to stand up against the unpredictable weather.
Each sneaker has been treated to help tackle rainy weather while keeping comfort and style. The Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas sneakers have been given a DWR (durable water repellant) treatment, standing guard as the first line of defense against the rain.
For the holiday season, both new and time-honored styles endure the harsh elements with the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention.
So here they are, feast your eyes on these foot babies and choose the one that fits you:
- Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas
Designed for the Chuck Taylor lover who can’t give up their Chucks no matter what the weather, the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas sneaker combines the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges. Converse has added a water repellent Shield Canvas and a gusseted tongue, as well as removing the medial eyelets to make a durable sneaker that is ready for wet and rainy adventures. The sneakers also feature reflective heel webbing and barrel laces for added visibility in low light environments.
