Converse gears up for Fall as releases its new Fall 2014 collection. Gone are the sweltering days where humidity hampers people from wearing sneakers. A preview Converse PH Fall 2014 collection and the latests and novel collection was presented to media and guests during a Converse gathering last Tuesday, August 19.
As the weeks now traverse to the cooler and wetter weather, “America’s Original Sports Company”™ Converse releases its new Fall 2014 collection which include the All-Star, Cons Sneaker and Apparel, and Jack Purcell Sneaker.
Over the years, the classic All-Star roster already stamped a reliable familiarity to the local market – may it be for a casual or ragged get-up.
With the new designs launched, Converse opted for a monochromatic assemblage with new profiles and elevated detailing which can endure rainy days or mud pits. One should not fret about getting it grubby even in the wildest outdoor music festival there is.
The Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber is water resistant due to its French terry lining with a rubber upper. It is completed with a gusseted tongue and brass eyelets.
Staying true to its vintage theme, this season also highlights distressed washes and contemporary graphic prints.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 Woven is leather in style with hand-crafted look and details such as round leather laces and tanned leather toecaps, available in both high and low cut.

To magnify the fall collection, Converse has also brought back its collaboration with legendary rock band, Black Sabbath, and iconic contemporary menswear designer, John Varvatos.
The new prints and fabrications reflect the distinct strong personality of Varvatos. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Black Sabbath displays iconic photos and album artwork.

The CONS Weapon Skate comes with elevated skateboarding functional designs. It takes pride with its drop-in Lunarlon sockliners which provide light and plush cushioning and a mesh underlay on hallmark Star Chevron – all increasing breathability.
It also has the CONS Traction Rubber with perforated memory foam to improve grip and durability and to avoid the ankle from obtaining a snug performance.
Meanwhile, the matte black color blocking of CONS Malden Racer gives way for a subtle statement when one is aiming for a creative appeal. It is waxed canvas and suede in nature – a redefined take on winter style from the classic 80’s era.
CONS Malden Arctic takes it a notch higher with its play on leather and suede, enhanced with a subtle debussed Star Chevron logo. This mid-cut sneaker is outfitted with a bootie construction and lugged outsole, fitting for the cold weather.

For a grand finishing touch, the Converse CONS apparel collection has a spectacle of sports-inspired outwear with graphic bold prints.
The collection is fueled by street culture and includes cool mixed-media hoodies with camo mixed and vintage heather gray, quilted shirt jackets, and graphic tees. The impressive roster intertwines effortlessly with the rebellious and creative drive of CONS.
