Converse has taken a huge step in support for the LGBT community with their new Converse Pride collection. This collection that was revealed May 13th offers a variety of styles and some limited edition Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers to celebrate the LGBT community, diversity and equality.
Rainbow colors have been incorporated throughout the sneakers in a variety of ways. The canvas is not the only part that received a color splash; the bottom soles also show off pride. Converse says these shoes “fight for the freedom to be you” and give style to your advocacy. Whether you like high tops or prefer the low cut Converse has you covered. With fourteen different Pride styles to choose from we have a few favorite you should consider first.
The first favorite is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride with woven body. This shoe is as unique as you with multiple colors woven throughout the body making it one of a kind. It’s a subtle nod at the movement.
Our next pick is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride low cut with rainbow speckles design. We love the simplicity of this sneaker that still speaks volumes toward acceptance and equality.
We also like the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride high top with drip paint design. The canvas looks like it was painted with watercolor and is an artistic salute to the movement. There is a similar style available in low cut.
Our last favorite is the Chuck Taylor All Star Pride high top with star print. Rainbow colors host stars on the canvas giving this pair a patriotic twist.
The best part about this collection is they can be worn by anyone. These designs are subtle and stylish enough everyone will want a pair.
Not all shoes are created equal. The Chuck Taylor All Star II Reflective Camo collection is a unique line with unique shoes. The original Chuck Taylor All Star II is a sneaker built to last with any wear and tear. The Reflective Collection has the same quality build with a special touch. Exploring shouldn’t stop when the sun goes down, with the new reflective material moonlight doesn’t stop the fun.
The Reflective Camo collection still has the existing Lunarlon insoles, non-slip tongue and micro-suede lining for comfortable wear all day. The hardest part about choosing your next sneaker is what color to get it!
The Reflective Camo collection has both high-top and low cut options. The classic high-tops come in Sandy or Charcoal color options and the low cut in White. All the canvas is traditional Converse top quality and made to endure any adventure.

On september 18 Converse will be dropping a brand new colorway of the Chuck II. This sneaker is inspired by the new Nike Lunarlon technology it's features giving this Chuck Taylor a bight glowing yellow tone. One may say this shoe is better off to keep as a conversation piece as it is quite loud in color, however you could wear them with all black everything allowing for the shoe to have full attention. For those that don't know Converse has been owned by Nike, Inc. for over a decade. I wouldn't be surprised if Converse designed a Chuck composed of Flyknit fabric in the near future. I always thought it would be cool to put a air bubble on a pair of All-Stars giving it a little bit of inspiration from the Nike Air Max line. I debating weather I will buy a pair of the Converse Volt color. If if do it will be with the intention of reselling it.
Don't forget to keep your Chucks clean with Star Cleaner.
After owning a pair of Converse Chuck II for over two weeks I am most satisfied with the new non-slip tongue the shoe has. Unlike the original Chuck with a flimsy tongue that either slides to the right or left, the new Chuck II has a firm padded tongue that stays in place! I think I might even find this upgrade more important the then Nike Lunarlon sole which gives the shoe it's needed arch support. I also like the more minimalistic design the shoe has. It seems that Converse dropped the signature blue pinstripe giving the midsole and toe a fresher look. The sneaker still scuffs just as easy and every other pair so we recommend using Star Cleaner to keep your soles in mint condition.
I was the 3rd person to grab a pair of Chuck II when they dropped on July 28th. I woke up first thing and went to Champs Sports at the St. Louis Galleria only to find out they didn't get any size 10 Chucks II shipped to their store! I was shocked and left quickly to search other stores like Footlocker whom didn't even have the new Converse what so ever. After walking back to Champs Sports to possibly see If I could fit into the Size 9, I noticed a Converse Chuck 2 display in front of the Journey store! My eyes lit up as I had a feeling of restored faith! I quickly asked one of the employees to bring me a size 10 to try on. I then tried them on and realized how much more comfortable and premium they felt! The upgrades consist of a non-slip tongue, higher quality canvas and a Nike Lunarlon insole. Before leaving I hooked up both of the guys working with a bottle of Star Cleaner so they could keep their new Converse Chucks clean. The next day I heard that the hi-top black Chuck II sold-out everywhere, so I looked on eBay only to see that people had listings set for $199 buy it now! Reselling sneakers is a popular thing to do, especially with retro Jordan releases. It's only a matter of time for the Iconic sneaker to be restocked in selected stores.
