Converse's Counter Climate Boot collection packs plenty of climate-battling capability, but the designs have thus far been reliably muted and simple. However, the brand-new Chuck Taylor All Star II Thermo Boot kicks things up a notch with diamond patterning and an army green and black colorway, among other eye-catching details.
These rugged, waterproof sneakerboots visually pop thanks to their contrasting materials. For starters, Nike's trademark Lunarlon cushioning has been wrapped in a tinted rubber shell, making for a plush and cushiony interior that will keep your feet comfy as you're slogging through all manner of rain and snow. Basically they're as warm and inviting as your favorite winter boot, but they come equipped with the sleek and active aesthetic of a high-top sneaker.
For added effect, the heel counter in the back and toe cap in the front have been coated in dark silver 3M reflective material, which maintains its sheen even in dim lighting.
