The two Chuck Taylor All-Star Highs included in the Americana Collection bring new meaning to the “All Star” name, dipped in the stars and stripes of the US flag. This batch of summer footwear never strays from the red, white, and blue color set up, and the pairing of such iconic American patterns just makes sense on an American footwear classic like the Converse All-Star.
