Converse’s top-tier line of products known as ‘First String Standards’ comes through with two new Chuck Taylors just in time for the Summer season, but does the perfect Summer-time shoe really need to get any better? The Chuck Taylor Mid comes in a grey melange jersey fabric upper with a second layor of nylon laid underneath for that cooling effect, while fine details like the tortoise-shell accent on the uppermost eyelet, the classic gum sole, and color-coordinated ribbon pull-tabs complete the look. A low-top in an natural off-white is available as well. Look out for these at Converse retailers now as they’ve already become ripe for the picking at Bows & Arrows, so flip through the gallery below for a detailed look.
