Three Converse kicks get a Nike upgrade
The new Chuck Taylor All Star x Nike Flyknit collection for Spring-Summer 2017 marks the first time Converse incorporates Nike Flyknit technology in any of its sneakers—resulting in an innovative version of the iconic Chuck Taylor kicks.
Topnotch features blend ultimate comfort with style: a breathable Nike Flyknit upper, Nike Lunarlon sockliner and a sleek thermoplastic-polyurethane (TPU)-fused toe cap to keep feeling cool no matter how long you stay on your feet.
Available in Black/Storm Wind, Wolf Gray/Cool Gray, Green Glow/Rio Teal, Casino/Rhubarb, White Mono and True Indigo/Soar, the high-cut kicks retail for P5,430.
Chuck Taylor All Star II Pastel
Chuck Taylor All Star II Pastel Midsole sneakers for girls boast a premium canvas upper, Microsuede lining and padded nonslip tongue, plus the new Lunarlon insole for that trademark Nike cushiony feel.
Available in porpoise and vapor pink, it retails for P3,990.
Before Michael Jordan started wearing the “swoosh,” the Converse Fastbreak was his shoe of choice during his playing years at the University of North Carolina and even in his first foray into pro basketball. Fans remember him wearing a pair at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.
Converse gives the iconic basketball sneaker a 2017 upgrade with its leather and nylon construction, rubber soles for durable traction and Nike’s Lunarlon technology.
But the shoe maintains its original design, making it a great throwback thing to wear.
The Converse Fastbreak retails for P4,950.
