After literally 98 years, Converse is redesigning their iconic and beloved Chuck sneaker design. And after much fanfare, they are dropping today. The new design is very looking, stilling being made of canvas and sporting the All Star stamp, but the inside features are what is giving the new release so much hype. MSNBC describes the actually quite luxurious upgrades as including a "Lunarlon sockliner, a lightweight bouncy arch cushioning that can be found in models by Nike, [...] micro-suede perforated lining, a foam padded collar, and a non-slip tongue." The Chuck IIs are available in white, black, red and blue for starting at $70.

With the extreme PR push behind this redesigned product (I mean Nike is the branding king right?), you'll be seeing a lot of new Chucks flooding your timelines and the streets of your city. And I suggest getting in on the all the fun!
Here are three fun ways to style your new Chucks!
Outfit #1: Feminine Fun
As a die hard girly-girl, I was NOT a fan of sneakers and dresses. But, of course, with the proper styling I eased my way into the trend. But a pair of pink Chuck IIs would be nice Converse!
Anyway, for this outfit start with a striped pencil skirt from Uniqlo and a coordinating striped crop top from Topshop (say that three times fast!). Accessorize with feminine touches such as pink Vera Bradley earrings and a pink Target minibag. Finish up with the black Chuck Taylor IIs.
Outfit #2: Casuals Weekender
Chucks are the ultimate in casual American dressing, so it lead itself well to the revived sundress and sneakers trend. Start off with this plus sized striped dress from Maurice's and add in a denim jacket for added Americana flare. Accessorize with a simple pair of Michael Kors hoops and a fun pineapple print canvas bag. Finish this look up with the white Chuck IIs.
Outfit #3: Sexy Chic
While yes Chucks are thought of as casual shoes, with the right styling you can amp up the sexy appeal. Start off with low hanging, ripped boyfriend jeans from Topshop and a white crochet crop top from River Island. Accessorize with a bright red Ivanka Trump bucket bag and a gold BCBGMAXAZRIA cuff. And, of course, finish up with the red Chuck Taylor IIs.
