CONVERSE UNVEILS THE SPRING/SUMMER 2016 ALL STAR FOOTWEAR AND APPAREL COLLECTION

Summer will just be a few months from now and it is this season converse fan like me would love to put on some of my cons collection on a hot summer's day. Recently, Converse Philippines unveils the summer and spring collection for 2016 for the All Star Footwear. Many of them are the classic cons with some added upgrades. 

My personal line-up. A few Chuck Taylor All Star, A John Varvatos and a couple of  Jack Purcels...
I’m happy to say that I’m a proud converse user since 1986, specifically high school days. This is where the time when Boat shoes and Topsiders were the popular footwear. However, the classic Chuck Taylor I had, even after several decades never did get out of style. I remember wearing them most of the time with a classic 501 Levi Straus pants, which for me projects a rugged and yet humble character. 

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Mono II...
This January 2016, expect these Cons models on the shelves of the nearest Converse stores. To start with, are the original contrast colors of Classic Chuck Taylor All Star 2 Mono. Both black and white models come with a tough canvas body with reinforced rubber over-lay on the side. One added feature is the in-sole or sock-lining Lunarlon Technology, the same feature you will see on Nike running shoes. 

Lunarlon In-sole / sock lining...
Since Converse was already bought by Nike, you can now expect some of its tech-features embedded in converse as well. So for those who are a long time converse user, you might want to adjust your Cons-shoe size to a half or one size bigger because of the insole that is added into it. Better yet, you can just remove the in-sole and bring it to its original feel. Personally, I always like the feel of my feet closer to the earth. Zero Drop Heel differential. The retail price for this classic Chuck Taylor is P3,990.

The Black Chucks practically goes with anything...
 Another Converse model that is now in stores is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star SEX PISTOLS collection. Converse came out with this models to pay tribute to the legendary British punk-rock band back in the 80’s, the SEX PISTOLS. An iconic band that some might say pioneered the “Anarchaic” form of music which a lot teenagers gone crazy over their songs.

I remember some of my high school buddies who were into punk-rock music, jazzed-up their white Chuck Taylor with their own personal sketches of Anarchy symbols and names of their favorite punk rock bands. I’m not much of a fan of Sex Pistols but I can still remember one of their most popular song, God Save the Queen. It’s only now that I learn that the band members are Converse followers as well. If you’re a Sex Pistols fan, you can grab a pair of these iconic sneakers at P3,510.

This tee also comes in gray...
  Of course, wearing a pair of Chucks this summer won’t be complete without getting into a cool Converse Chuck Taylor All Star tees. These apparels come in two-tone colors – gray and black on sleeves and neck line and the other one is white, also with black sleeve and neck lining. These cool tees also feature nice logo of converse. A very cool tops to wear in hot summer days ahead. This January, available colors are Gray and White, but more exciting colors will soon arrive in the coming months.
