Converse continues to take innovation very serious, this time by taking wet weather head-on. By combining classic sneaker designs with premium weatherized features, Converse presents the new Counter Climate Footwear and Apparel Collection for Fall/Holiday 2016. The new sneaker collections feature a bold mix of colours and materials designed to give the wearer the necessary tools to combat the shifts in climate. Made from innovative materials including water repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene, the new collections can be divided into three unique categories: Shield Canvas, Rubber, and Boots. All of which are treated to help stand up against unpredictable inclement weather while maintaining comfort and style.

The Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas sneakers have been given a durable water repellant (DWR) treatment, the first line of defense against the rain. The Counter Climate Rubber collection features rubber boots and sneakers which are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention. Lastly, function and style go hand-in-hand with this season’s Counter Climate Boots, sneaker boots that have been reimagined to provide superior protection with waterproof and water repellent features such as insulated booties.

The new Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear collection will be featured on the Chuck Taylor  II, the All Star Selene, the Cons One Star, and the Jack Purcell Signature and will launch beginning today, August 9, 2016, at Converse retail stores, third party retailers and on Take a look at the new collection below.
