Chuck Taylors and Christmas don’t usually go hand-in-hand, since canvas sneakers aren’t exactly the best shoes for staying toasty in the cold. That, however, won’t be the case with these Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Suede Hi-Top, which comes decked in the popular winter footwear material.
Even better, it comes in a claret hue, making it a good holiday fit whether you’re decked in an ugly Christmas sweater or a Santa Claus suit. Granted, the red-purplish color of claret wine isn’t exactly the same as Santa’s bright red hue, but it’s close enough that it should help you get into the holiday spirit, all while being easier to pair with the rest of the street garb in your wardrobe (dark jeans, sweatpants, and chinos should all play nicely).
The Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Suede Hi-Top is rendered in the same retro style from its namesake decade, giving it just that extra hint of charm for dedicated sneaker fans. Of course, it doesn’t quite stay completely faithful to the old design, since these modern kicks use more comfortable foot beds and more premium materials to ensure a better wearing experience. Features include white rubber toe caps, gripped rubber soles, and white laces.
Not a fan of the maintenance required for suede shoes? Well, these are Chucks, after all, which means they’ll likely look even better after being ravaged by the elements – something that can’t be said for the suede boots you see in heavy rotation during winter.
Available now, the Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor All Star Suede Hi-Top is priced at $95.
