Perhaps the most well known sneaker silhouette of all times, clearly a classic and exceptionally successful… Why would anyone want to change it? Well, even classics like Converse Chuck Taylors need some attention for updates as well. In this case, the Chuck Taylor 2 have been treated like Hellenistic antiquity with the most sensible care and respect for the original version.
The silhouette has not been altered, at least not in an disturbing way that it would be recognized as a big makeover from the original silhouette. However, it has been updated in terms of its materials, and comfort first and foremost, and in all honesty, with the highest respect and all for the OG´s, it was about time. Even for the Chuck Taylors.
