The Chuck Taylor All Stars have been unchanged for a hundred years. Why change the iconic design when it’s the footwear of choice for so many musicians? Well, because the sole is just a brick of rubber, the thin fabric tongue always slides to the side, and after a while your foot busts out of the side seams.
Here’s how Converse has perfected the design:
- padded, nonslip tongue
- better canvas on the outside
- micro-suede on the inside
- side reinforcement
- an actual insole!
