Just under a year ago, Converse released a new Chuck Taylor variant tha applied the ridged sole and upper construction including quadruple-stitching that you’d find on the traditional duck boot design. Its lowtop vamp wasn’t really intended to keep the harsh elements away from your feet, but just like this new pack, that can be just fine when the One Star continues to hit the aesthetic mark so precisely. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi ‘D-Boots’ are instantly recognizeable, again, thanks to the heavy-duty stitching that connects the upper and mudguard, but this trio’s reliance upon suede for that bottom layer ensures that these’ll remain indoors on the rainiest days.
