Many of the most recent variations on the immortal Converse Chuck Taylor All Star have involved integrating design cues from other well established styles. Things like duck boots, fuzzy UGG-style arctic looks and even hunting caps have come into the mix of late, but what about just applying a subtle twist to the classic Chuck Taylor? That’s exactly what they’ve done with the new All Star Collar Break, a black-on-white design that utilizes waxed canvas everywhere on the upper except the top ankle collar, which is done in a rich full grain leather. This is the kind of thing you’ll be able to wear long after some of the crazier Chucks are retired as period pieces, and you can grab a pair right now directly from Converse.
