Meet Chuck II, also known as the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II, if you want to get all formal. Available in black, red, blue, and white, and in high- and low-tops, these version 2.0 kicks may not look that different at first glance. Most of the cosmetic change is subtle–better canvas and stitching, minor improvements to the eyelets and star patch. But the real upgrade is under the hood, so to speak, with the inclusion of a Lunarlon sockbed, which provides much-needed cushioning and arch support, something severely lacking from those classic Chucks we all know and love.
The Limited Edition pre-sale is sold out, but they go on sale to the rest of you Chuck fans on July 28. As Tom Petty says, the waiting is the hardest part.
