Converse just gave Chuck Taylors their first redesign in 98 years

I had no idea Chuck Taylors were 98 years old.

For The Win

It took 12 years, but Nike is finally bringing new school technology to Chuck Taylors. On the outside, it’s near impossible to detect any aesthetic changes to the iconic shoe. But on the inside, Chucks are about to get a whole lot more wearable. There’s the Lunarlon sockliner and suede lining making this feel like just about every other Nike basketball and running shoe. That’s a good thing, since walking in Chucks previously felt like strapping cardboard to the soles of your feet.

There’s also the difference in name. These are the Chuck Taylor II’s. And yes, the Chuck II is more expensive (priced at $75). It’s also sold out currently, giving you enough time to save the money from your paper route to buy a pair before school starts.
