The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Seasonal Leather Low Top are unisex shoes offered in ranges from 4 to 13 US and 5 to 15 US in men’s and women’s respectively. Like most Converse CTAS kicks, these shoes fairly run large that it is advisable to go a full size down. Considering that these Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Seasonal Leather Low Top casual shoes are made of leather, these sneakers need a bit of break-in period to allow the upper to soften down and give your feet ample time to adjust to the mold.
Converse allows you to be versatile with your daily ensemble while adding a bit of flair to your mundane, laidback outfit choices. To achieve a casually elegant charm, try teaming up a black overcoat with a white shirt, black tapered pants, and this shoe. Or you can switch the top with a suit to infuse extra stylishness into your usual pair-ups. You may also want to consider fusing a leather biker jacket, plain colored shirt, and dress pants for dressier occasions.
The highly prominent feature of this shoe is the use of leather on the entire upper which becomes more pliable the longer you use the shoe. Apart from the usual flat cotton laces, this low-top Chuck Taylor Seasonal Leather kick is packaged with two sets of rope laces that encourage you to be more versatile in styling this up.
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Seasonal Leather Low Top is one proof on how a 100-year-old kick remains prevalent to this day and age. It came from the same pipeline as the high-top, cotton-made Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers but with a low-top, leather makeup.
Commonly known as the Chuck Taylors, these casual sneakers have performed a significant role on the hardcourt to pop culture generations upon generations. Way before Puma became known for its ball shoe lineup such as the Puma Basket, Puma Suede, and Puma Clyde, Converse has been a go-to brand by basketball athletes since the early 1920s due to its All Star, a high-top hoop shoe with a soft canvas cover and grippy rubber outsole.
The Converse All Star was introduced in 1917 by Marquis Mills Converse, founder of the Converse Rubber Shoe Company, which was later popularized by a basketball star and Converse shoe salesman Charles “Chuck” Hollis Taylor. Chuck peddled the basketball shoe across America in the early 1920s by facilitating basketball clinics and selling the Converse All Star at the same time.
The shift to casual sneakers in the subsequent decades made the Chucks a cultural icon more than an official basketball shoe for the Olympics and the NBA. From the original black and white silhouette, the Chucks were made into an extensive inventory of colors in high-top to low-top versions. Even the canvas upper was modified using leather, suede, and knit and draped with a litany of colors. The affordability and style versatility of Chuck Taylors are among the top reasons why now, even under the Swoosh label, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars still have a large following among sneaker-loving enthusiasts.
