In the last couple of years Converse has taken some innovative steps forward in the footwear industry. Its been more then a decade since being owned by Nike inc., and they are finally incorporating some of their homegrown technology. The biggest game changer in the Converse Chuck Taylor 2 is it's Nike Lunarlon insoles that gives the sneaker arch support. The Chuck 2 also features a non-slip tongue and a more premium canvas upper. Design wise they kept it very similar to it's original because of the fear of breaking something thats not broken. The new Chuck II features appear to be more minimalistic without it having it's signature blue line. The shoe also has more of a couture fit and giving it a premium look and feel. It's been two days since the release and they are sold out in stores. You can find a pair on eBay tonight but expect to pay $129-$199 for a sneaker that retails at $75. This release tells us Converse is on a new path with many other great things to come! Who knows they might keep the ball rolling and drop a Chuck 3 year.
