Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern Lux

Distinctly a Chuck Taylor but also a couple of notches more upmarket than the classic white and black sneaker, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern Lux comes in monochromatic all-white or all-black colorways. Instead of canvas it’s made of supple, molded leather and instead of heavy rubber there’s a lightweight Phylon outsole (think running shoes), boosting comfort while also helping these kicks better blend. The latter which is either a good or bad thing depending on who you’re asking. Still, they’re relatively affordable considering the upgrades and boast the same All Star patch as the classic high top pair, albeit embossed in the leather.
