Converse is taking the wet weather head-on this season with the debut of the Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear Collection.

Combining classic sneaker designs with premium weather-proof features, the new collections provide the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts. This set of innovative sneakers sports a bold mix of colors and materials, including water-repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene.

Divided into three unique categories—Shield Canvas, Leather, and Rubber—these collections stand up against the unpredictable inclement weather.


Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas (P4,550)

The new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas sneaker combines the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue, and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges. Converse has added a water-repellent Shield Canvas and a gusseted tongue, and removed the medial eyelets to make a durable sneaker that is ready for wet and rainy adventures. The reflective heel webbing and barrel laces for improves visibility in low-light environments.

Available colors: Black/Volt, Black/Reflective, White/Lava, Black


Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber (P5,430)

Another iteration of the Chuck II released this fall is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Rubber. Incorporating a transparent rubber overlay on the iconic Chuck II silhouette, the sneaker can breathe while repelling water and protecting your feet from the elements. The sneaker features a Lunarlon sockliner and a non-slip padded tongue, as well as a beautifully crafted dimensional canvas, micro-perforated leather lining, and a heat reflecting barrier at the footbed.




Converse Cons One Star Shield Canvas (P4,250)

The Converse Cons Star also receives the Shield Canvas treatment, combining the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner with a lightweight and breathable canvas that also withstands the rain.
