‘It’s like a condom for your feet’ would probably be the best way to describe Converse’s new Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber collection that made its debut in Singapore yesterday. Made entirely of rubber (duh) and lined with soft fleece, the strikingly monochromatic sneakers are also touted to be waterproof and the perfect pair for ‘rainy day weather and music festival mud pits’. Now while I don’t do mud pits unless there’s one at Mariah’s upcoming concert at National Stadium come 24 October, I might get a pair or two myself because Singapore’s weather can be a bitch sometimes and I’ve ruined enough pairs of leather loafers that way.
How much, you ask? Priced at SGD79.90 for each pair, you’ll find them in 4 colours, Black, Red, Wild Honey (the fancy name for Yellow) and White, which you’ll be able to buy now at Converse boutiques, and online via Converse Singapore.
