Converse doesn’t have to integrate other footwear styles into its flagship design to keep it fresh. They can also do quite a lot by manipulating subtler design elements, as has been the case countless times with the ankle collar on the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. We’ve seen a variety of two-toned and hidden-image-revealing flip-down pairs over the past few years and most recently the ‘Collar Break’ edition offered a novel take on material distribution that’s replicated, albeit in a totally different way, on the ‘Double Collar’ All Star High. These feature an extra quilted padding to the classic Chuck silhouette whose diamond bulges are accomodated by a split heel, at the crest of which you’ll find a convenient pull tab. The One Star does it again, and you can grab a pair of the Double Collar Chucks from Size?.
