White, black? High, low? Just few of the things to consider when choosing the shoes to wear. But when it rainy season comes, it is harder to choose, as you wouldn’t want to ruin your shoes due to rain.
Converse is making it easier for you to decide the shoes to go along with your attired, even on a very unpredictable weather, by making their Fall/Holiday 2016 collection repel water in time for the rainy season.
Combining classic sneaker designs with premium weatherized features, the Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse collection, named as Counter Climate is the latest innovation of Converse to combat the climate shifts while emphasizing essential weather-beating benefits.
The new 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 stand up against the unpredictable 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, both new and time-honored styles endure the harsh elements with the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention.
