Converse combines classic sneaker designs with premium weatherized features in its Fall-Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear Collection.

 

The new collections provide the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts while emphasizing essential weather-beating benefits. The innovative sneaker collections feature a 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 withstand unpredictable or inclement weather.

 

Each sneaker has been treated to help tackle rainy weather while maintaining 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, there are new and time-honored styles in the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are made of water-resistant materials.

 

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas sneaker has the Lunarlon sockliner, nonslip padded tongue and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges.

Another iteration of the Chuck II is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber. By incorporating a transparent rubber overlay on the iconic Chuck II silhouette, this allows for the sneaker to breathe while repelling water and protecting feet from the elements.

 

This season, the Converse Cons Star also receives the Shield Canvas treatment, combining the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner with a lightweight and breathable canvas that can also withstand the rain. Added features include a gusseted tongue and removed medial eyelets allowing the sneaker to tolerate wet environments.

 

The Converse Jack Purcell Signature collection introduces a thicker Shield Canvas with a water-repellent finish, and a tricolor reflective heel stay. A mesh lining backing the shield canvas regulates temperatures across a range of climates while still keeping the sneaker breathable. Reflective laces add flare while a gusseted tongue construction will prevent water from seeping into the dual pod Nike Zoom Air insole technology.

 

The Converse Essentials collection features quality and durable everyday basics for your active, on-the-go lifestyle. Constructed for comfort
