Love at First Sight: Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Stars in Rubber

One more reason to pray for rain

We’re not happy about the extreme drought California is experiencing, and for many reasons. Some are obvious: It’s wreaking havoc on our ecosystem and straining the state’s already meager resources for water. Others are significantly more superficial: It’s keeping us, for example, from stepping out in Converse’s super cute new water resistant Chuck Taylor All Stars (available in Converse stores and online today), which are designed to keep feet dry and warm with a rubber exterior and fleece lining. There’s something very L.A. about the idea of wearing converse in the rain, and since each pair of adult sneakers retail for just $65, we can afford to snag a pair now while we wait for more appropriate weather. At least our rain dance will look chic.
