When I was a kid, owning a pair of Chuck Taylor, Jack Purcell or Cons was a necessity. Aside from my old training rubber shoes, I owned 2-3 different colors of these type of sneakers to match with my childhood outfits and daily encounters. As I grew up, I never thought that the shoes' classical designs and layouts will stay the same, injecting a series of innovations that will adapt to the fashionable and quality demands of its patrons and the weather. Speaking of improvements, Converse Philippines launched its water resistant lines called the Counter Climate last September 5th, 2016 in Sky High Bar in Ace Hotel and Suites.
There are three classifications of the sneakers that complete the entire collection: Shield Canvas, Rubber, and High-Cut. These pairs are designed for the unpredictable and rainy weathers which are suitable in Manila. Moreover, the Shield Canvas kicks are given a durable water repellant treatment which enables the wearer to conquer wet season.
One thing that caught my attention was the Counter Climate sneakers' lunarlon bed/sock-liners. This will enable any wearer to go on long walks without complaining of aching feet. Furthermore, the non-slip padded tongue, micro-suede lining, and some other vital materials can help withstand the changes in seasons or climates. Also, seeing each pair in person is a must so as you can check, touch, and experience the wonders of Converse innovations.
Each Counter Climate pair will be available to any leading Shoe and Converse Stores nationwide. Each pair will cost around Php 4550. Also, if you want to be in the loop of the latest happenings, events, and promos, you may want to check their Facebook page here.
