Built in 1917 as a no-slip basketball shoe, Chuck Taylor All-Stars have become an icon in our society.
But you know what Chuck Taylors are also known for? Not performing well in the elements. If there is any amount of moisture, the All-Stars are sure to become saturated almost immediately. Also, if there's any snow or a tiny bit of a slick surface, the All-Stars make a simple trip down the sidewalk a full-blown adventure.
That's why the release of these Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shield Canvas PC High Tops are so great. The classic All Stars get a much-needed upgrade by using water-resistant canvas, as well as a rugged outsole to add some grip to the shoe. As winter weather approaches, these shoes will be a nice upgrade as your everyday shoe.
