Video reviews and unboxing

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Street High Tops come in men’s and women’s sizes. The shoes are, thankfully, unisex like most Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars are. The sizes for men range from 3 to 13, while the women’s run from 5 to 15. 

The fit is considered average for many, but the length runs slightly larger by about a half size. The tongues and ankles are well-padded, providing ample support and cushioning.

A seven-pair eyelet lacing system gives the wearer a way to customize the shoes to his/her feet. There’s a secured band of elastic in the shoes, which keeps the feet locked in even when the laces aren’t tied all the way up. This also makes it possible to put the shoes on and off quickly.

These latest renditions of the CTAS put a more street-style and modern spin to a retro favorite. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Street High Top sneakers contain new V-shaped panels that go across the uppers from the medial and lateral sides of the heel to the tongues. These panels lend extra support to the kicks as well as enhanced durability.

According to several reviews, the kicks tend to get a lot of compliments from strangers asking wearers where they got their kicks. If this is your kind of thing, then you’re in luck. With these on, you’ll most definitely stand out. 

The colorways of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Street High Top shoes are wide and varied. Some shoes are tonal, some two-toned, while others contain Converse wordmarks on the panels. 

Most of the things that endeared the public to one of the world’s oldest sneaker silhouettes (Chuck Taylor All Star Highs) are present in these kicks, only made better and in accordance with modern sensibilities.

The canvas uppers are durable and easy to wash and care for, just like the old model. Although the shoes have the same high-profile construction as the original CTAS Highs, the tongues and collars here are way more padded and supportive, thus adding to comfort. The colors are also more distinctive because of the striking mixture of hues and graphics. 

In 1917, when Converse launched a new silhouette, little did everyone know that it would become one of the most enduring and beloved shoes ever. The Non-Skids or All Stars, as they were previously known, would prove to be the ultimate basketball shoes and reign for decades on the court.

These old basketball classics were later renamed to Chuck Taylor All Stars in honor of the man who made the Converse name synonymous with basketball, and who, by doing so, put the brand on the global map. 

Because of the immense popularity of these sneakers, Converse reimagined and reinterpreted the silhouette in multiple ways. They launched the shoes in different cuts (low and mid), utilized new fabric (leather, suede, and more), added swag (embroidery, bling, glittery material), and gave the shoes new height (platforms). 

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Street High Tops are yet new iterations of the old classic, only with a more contemporary, street-style vibe. 

  • Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Street High Tops are priced at $60.
  • CTAS is short for Chuck Taylor All Star.
  • The shoes contain striped rubber midsoles and the trademark CTAS toe caps. 
  • These unisex Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Street High Tops come in black and red, black and white, and red and white color schemes, among many others.
