User reviews:

Converse Chuck Taylor MC18 High Tops are unisex sneakers, thankfully. They are based on men’s sizes. Women who’d like to keep their feet stylish in harsh weather need to subtract two sizes from their usual Converse shoe measurement. (There is about two sizes difference between the men’s and women’s models under the Converse brand.)

The shoes feature a double-lacing system which keeps feet locked down securely. Sizing reportedly runs a half size too big.

Have no fear that wet or cold weather might damage your kicks. Mother Nature’s weapons are no match against the Converse Chuck Taylor MC18 High Tops. These shoes will ensure that you can still step out in style no matter the weather and keep your feet snug and dry at the same time.

Style these sneakers the usual way you wear your Chucks. With loose denim, long skirts, shorts, boyfriend jeans, and anything else in between. Just like the classic CT, these look good with virtually anything.

These all-weather Chuck Taylor high tops from Converse’s Mountain Club 18 Collection are packed with many utilitarian details you’ll love. The uppers are coated with DWR (Durable Water Repellant), and the linings are Gore-Tex. Gusseted tongues keep the moisture out while Ortholite insoles keep feet comfy inside. Rain, mud, and snow are nothing because your feet will be safely ensconced in these heavy-duty but stylish kicks.

Converse Chuck Taylor MC18 High Top sneakers are the Converse brand’s answer to enthusiasts of the iconic Chuck Taylor All Stars who wish to wear their Chucks everywhere and in every season. From summer favorites, the trusty Chucks are now battle-ready against any inclement weather.

The MC in the model’s name stands for Mountain Club while the 18 is for the year the MC collection launched which is 2018. The Mountain Club Collection is composed of three popular Converse silhouettes—the Fastbreak, the One Star, and the Chuck Taylor—reinterpreted with Gore-Tex. All three take inspiration from the Extreme Cold Weather Cleats that Converse previously produced in the 50s. The cleats were made of rubber and were designed military-style.

Converse Chuck Taylor MC18 High Top shoes feature external instructions such as “Fold Gusset This Side Only,” “Keep Double Laced To Hold Firmly,”  and “Gore-Tex Layered Upper Keep Closed” that serve as a type of utilitarian design. The last instruction is printed in a circle and takes the place of the All Star badge.

  • Converse CT MC18 High Tops are available in White and Black.
  • Uncured rugged rubber outsoles provide excellent traction.
  • The shoes dropped on November 18, 2018.
