Converse has achieved the impossible by reinvigorating a footwear staple in its new Chuck Modern collection. Fusing its own rich sports heritage—the Chuck Taylor All Stars dominated the NBA for almost two decades—with cutting-edge technology, the shoes focus on being jacks of all trades. As fit for streetwear as a night out, this line comes in either a breathable mesh or canvas that combines durability with wearability. With styles available in exciting colors including buff, porpoise, khaki, and jade, the Modern leaves behind the expected Chuck palette. By mixing the old with the bold, Converse has updated its icon perfectly.
