Converse Chuck Taylor has been redesigned for the first time in 98 years.

Converse has decided to redesign the Chuck Taylor after almost 100 years. It appears that the brand that was originally designed as a sports shoe has now been given new life to appeal to the non sporting community. The legendary trainer is now often used in many arenas such as the music, design, fashion and art industries which they decided to cater to. Although not much has changed in it's appearance it is now designed to be a lot more comfortable and applicable to a modern shoe wearer. It features all-white foxing, a Nike Lunarlon sock liner and perforated microsuede liner, a foam padded collar, and a tongue that never needs straightening.
