The newest Chuck Taylors all have clear soles, with black or white canvas uppers and monochromatic or printed laces. Given the familiarity and classic look of Chuck Taylors, these modern renditions of the style are more inviting than intimidating.  And whether you prefer a pop of color or more versatile clear style, there’s a range of translucent Chuck Taylors — including high-top and low-top versions — to add to your lineup.

Converse has been a driving force in the sneaker world for decades. Complete with a signature capped toe, the label’s simple styles were frequented by athletes in 1950’s and are now street style favorites among every everyday shoppers and celebrities.
