When it comes to “any day” type of sneakers, the “Chucks” or Chuck Taylor is probably the top choice for many. And for this 2016, many Filipinos will most likely look at the Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono included in the Spring Summer Collection of Converse this year.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Mono is offered in classic monochrome black and parchment both in high top and low top silhouettes.
In the Philippines, it will be available starting January at retail price of P 3,990.
What I have is the Chuck Taylor II low top in parchment. The Chuck Taylor II mono looks sturdy but feels more comfortable.
With its Nike Lunalon insole, the cushioning is softer yet seems supportive.
For someone like me, who once suffered from plantar fasciitis, shoes are critical.Walking around with casual sneakers may cause me inflammation. That’s why, good thing for the Chuck Taylor II to have the Lunarlon insole. The whole night of wearing it was a breeze.
Converse Jack Purcell
Another very interesting find in the Spring Summer Collection is the Converse Jack Purcell Signature CVO. It features a durable 2-ply duck canvas upper with seamless toe construction, original two-pieced smile, an OrthoLitefootbed, Zoom Air technology, as well as a herringbone outsole for traction that was first introduced on the Signature model last year.
Personally, the Converse Jack Purcell is a looker – a pair of sneakers worth having and wearing. It has maintained its classy yet ruggedly look. A thing that men who loves wearing sneakers would really appreciate.
Available colors: Black and White
Suggested retail price: P 4,630
Converse Cons One Star
A new set of sneakers in the roster this season are the Converse Cons One Star – a lifestyle sneaker with a focus on premium materials. These lightweight sneakers are made with durable hairy suede that make these shoes sturdy yet comfortable for everyday use.
Key features include a Lunarlon sockliner for cushioning, as well as lightweight Cons traction rubber for better grip. A higher foxing tape also helps deliver a more premium look.
