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 got changed? 

  • Ultra comfier. 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.  
  • 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 that’s designed to move with you comfortably wraps the feet and ankle.
  • Trendy. Instead of the usual black, white, or brown gum sole, the bottom of this upgraded style gets an icy rubber foxing, making it more fresh and fashionable.
