Isn’t it annoying and day ruining whenever your shoes gets wet from the rain? or when you stepped into a puddle of water while walking on the streets?. Now you don’t need to think about your shoes getting wet and sacrifice fashion as Converse launched the Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear Collection.
The said collection is divided into three unique categories: Shield Canvas, Leather and Rubber– these collections are intended to stand up against the unpredictable inclement weather. Under such categories are Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber, Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber, Converse Cons One Star Shield Canvas, Converse Jack Purcell Signature Twill Shield Canvas, and the Converse Jack Purcell Signature M-Series.
The new Counter Climate Collection provides the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts while emphasizing essential weather-beating benefits. The innovative sneaker collections feature a bold mix of colors and materials including water repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene.
Each sneaker has been treated to help tackle rainy weather while maintaining comfort and style. The Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas sneakers have been given a DWR (durable water repellant) treatment, standing guard as the first line of defense against the rain.
For the holiday season, both new and time-honored styles endure the harsh elements with the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas (Php 4,550)
Designed for the Chuck Taylor lover who can’t give up their Chucks no matter what the weather, the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas sneaker combines the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges. Converse has added a water repellent Shield Canvas and a gusseted tongue, as well as removing the medial eyelets to make a durable sneaker that is ready for wet and rainy adventures. The sneakers also feature reflective heel webbing and barrel laces for added visibility in low light environments.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber (Php 5,430)
Another iteration of the Chuck II will also be releasing this fall – the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber. By incorporating a transparent rubber overlay on the iconic Chuck II silhouette, this allows for the sneaker to breathe while repelling water and protecting feet from the elements. The sneaker includes all the features and benefits of the Chuck II such as a Lunarlon sockliner and a non-slip padded tongue, while adding a beautifully crafted dimensional canvas for breathability, micro-perforated leather lining for comfort, and a heat reflecting barrier at the footbed for warmth.
