* Another classic collaboration from Converse and John Varvatos
* Features new materials and a Nike insole
* Perforated off-white leather

Since the Chuck Taylor All Star was first introduced some 100 years ago, the iconic silhouette hadn’t seen a modern overhaul until 2015. That’s right, it took 98 years for Converse to finally update the classic with more modern features, like a Nike insole for added comfort. Now the Chuck II is getting the signature John Varvatos rockstar treatment and it might be the best one yet.

Perforations along the quarter panel and tongue add to the unique nature of this ongoing collaboration between Converse and the inimitable John Varvatos. The off-white leather high top has that broken-in look that gives off strong cozy vibes. With a padded non-slip tongue, plush micro-suede lining and a Nike Lunarlon insole, you might actually want to go for an extended jaunt in these, unlike previous iterations. The tonal rubber toe cap and midsole add to the clean yet grungy aesthetic.

Chuck II Perforated Leather High Top


With its signature red star design and smokey clear sole, the Converse Chuck II high top by John Varvatos is a must-have this season and beyond. Whether you’ve never owned a pair of Chucks before or this happens to be your 100th pair, these will only get better with age and wear.
