Converse has in recent months released a series of updates to its classic sneakers which include the, Chuck II, the Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas and now the Converse All Star Modern.

The challenge for Converse, which has been around since 1908, is to take its classic and popular Chuck Taylor All Star and re-purpose it for the modern man or woman while still retaining the key features we love. The introduction of the Converse All Star Modern which is inspired by the 1920 All Star, a  press release states, "begins a celebration of Converse’s deep legacy in sports, with modern updates for today’s active lifestyle consumer".
