Converse isn’t usually the first brand you think of when you hear the word “class”. The brand is synonymous with the Chuck Taylor, which is more often than not found on the feet of someone of the hipster or emo variety. Outlandish knee high lace ups, paint stains, and Sharpie scribbles have put light years of separation between the Converse of yesteryear, a brand that was the patriarch of modern athletic shoes, to what they’re known for today.
Thankfully it looks like they’re branching out. Take a look at the Straight Shooter Spec Hi in Burgandy. Composed of select leather and canvas, it is currently available for purchase at a reasonable $80.
