For Fall/Holiday 2016, Converse prepares for the inclement weather ahead with the Counter Climate Rubber Footwear and Apparel Collection. In the former category, the All Star II takes on a transparent rubber overlay, while the Jack Purcell incorporates a water resistant matte rubber upper and a thermo-regulating backer for added warmth. Kids also get the Chuck Taylor All Star Storm with a sticky rubber upper to repel rain and an inner neoprene bootie for comfort. On the apparel side, the Women’s Rubber Poncho and Men’s Rubber Fishtail Jacket have considered details, like a storm guard behind the zipper and strategically placed eyelets to allow for moisture to escape. The Converse Rubber backpack and duffel round out the range. Look for the goods to launch tomorrow in stores and online at
