Converse Wraps the Classic All Star 100 in Black GORE-TEX

A fool-proof choice.

The Converse All Star is arguably the most quintessential example of what a sneaker can be — it’s a fool-proof option and stands the test of time — but as we all know there comes a moment when the shoe’s worn out beyond being lovingly distressing. Now, Converse has solved this problem by crafting the All Star 100 out of GORE-TEX.

Following on from other Converse All Star 100 GORE-TEX Hi iterations — like this over-branded pair or the duck camo version — the sneaker giant takes things back to basics by dropping this offering in black. It still features a classic canvas upper, but now this has been covered in GORE-TEX which weather-proofs the sneaker against all of the elements.

One of the key advantages of it being covered in GORE-TEX is that you can now wear your Converses in the rain and they won’t get sodden, which as we probably all know then turns the canvas into a stiff, unforgiving material.

Aside from the black colorway, you’ll find GORE-TEX branding on a tab on the rear, white contrast stitching, a white sole unit and toe cap, and a hardwearing outsole finished with blue Converse branding.

Costing ¥ 16,500 JPY (approx. $150 USD), the Converse All Star 100 GORE-TEX “Black” can be purchased over on mita sneaker’s website now. Take a closer look at the pair above.

In other news, Ferrari and PUMA have returned with the ION F sneaker.
