Your favorite kicks brand has partnered with GORE-TEX to bring a Chuck Taylor ‘70 pack for the winter season. We don’t need to tell you that Chucks are one of the staples style staples for men and women alike. Yet for all its casual flair, however, there’s one very unfortunate con. They easily get wet, even when there’s just a light drizzle. With the Chuck 70 GORE-TEX collection, this will no longer be a problem.

Each shoe features the same silhouette as before. However, the entire lineup comes with upgrades this time around, especially with regards to outdoor durability. Now, they boast completely waterproof GORE-TEX lining so you can step onto puddles without worrying about getting them too wet or too soggy. But why stop there, Converse though. The company also threw in a gusseted tongue on each shoe to improve their water-resistance even further. That makes these kicks the perfect companion for the forthcoming rainy season.

All the featured models also have an Ortholite insert that ensures they’re super comfortable to wear all-day, and you can choose between various colorways when they ship this October, including black, pink, orange, and many others. Each pair costs $140. That’s certainly a small price to pay to get one of the most iconic style pieces around, now with amped durability and waterproofing. The Chuck 70 GORE-TEX strikes the perfect balance between classic, reliable, and robust, and now you don’t have to worry about wearing them outside when it’s raining.
