Who should NOT buy Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX High Top

Whether you have narrow or wide feet, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Top is an impressive alternative to this model, which has a restricting fit. 

However, if you are leaning more on the broad side of the spectrum, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Platform High Top is the better choice since it is roomy.

Those with regular foot width will find this comfortable right out of the box

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX Hi requires no break-in as it's pliable out of the box. However, the rubber foxing makes the toebox a bit tight and constricting, which those with wide feet might find uncomfortable.

A pillowy and light sole makes moving around delightful

The primary source of comfort comes from the innovative and lightweight CX foam phylon midsole and a removable, memory foam-like insole. These are incredibly soft and shock absorbing.

Chuck supporters say this high-top is surprisingly lightweight. Thanks to its midsole, some say it's a fraction lighter than the Chuck Taylor All Star and Chuck 70

This Converse model is perfect for those who are on the go

Slipping in and out is effortless as its canvas upper "flexes easily."

The tongue needs to be tied down

The tongue of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX High Top will not stay in place. Some hoped that there is a belt loop on the tongue where the laces can pass through so that the tongue will stop moving.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star CX Hi: The comfiest Chucks as yet

Well-loved Converse Chucks has kept true to its original, old-school basketball form for many decades. 

Regardless of the color, graphic, or embellishment, Chucks are recognized by almost everyone for their unpadded canvas upper, ankle patch, rubber foxing, and waffle tread. 

After more than 100 years, these star-blazoned high-tops get ultra-comfy with the Converse Chuck Taylor CX drop.

What has changed? 

  • More flexible. Its cushioning makeup is supported by a re-engineered rubber that's tough-wearing but way malleable than the older Chucks.
  • Foot-hugging. A unique dynamic stretch canvas designed to move with you comfortably wraps the feet and ankle.
