The Converse Chuck Taylor II Just Got A Luxe Leather Upgrade

These “car leather” kicks were inspired by high-end auto interiors.


Last year, Coverse’s classic Chuck Taylor got its first major upgrade since it was introduced in 1917. While much of the style was preserved, the iconic sneaker was outfitted with a new Nike sockliner and perforated suede for a cozier and more breathable shoe. Now, we’re seeing some serious style innovations with a new luxe, leathered-out edition.

The new “Car Leather” Chuck II comes with quilted leather uppers, inspired by the lush interiors of high-end sports cars.

It works with the recognizable Chuck Taylor silhouette, but its distinguishable trademark is missing to keep things mad classy.

There are three versions: one is in all black, another is in all white, and the wild horse of the pack comes with a brown upper, a black tongue, and white sole.

The Converse Chuck II Hi QS Car Leather is available in stores, and the all-black option is selling online at KITH.
