Converse took the classic slip-on silhouette and revamped it with durable materials and a comfortable design. They even added OrthoLite sockliners and Nike Zoom Air Bags for maximum cushioning and impact protection. Now that's a shoe you can skate.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
Rubber Backed Suede - Added durability thanks to the rubber backed suede, the rubber layer is applied to the back of the suede to enhance durability and extend the life of the upper, these shoes are tough.
Molded OrthoLite Sockliner - Specially developed Converse double density molded OrthoLite sockliner features heel and forefoot pads in high impact areas for energy dispersion.
OrthoLite foam fights against fungus, bacteria and odor through a patented environmentally friendly biocide
High level of breathability and moisture wicking, OrthoLite's open cell polyurethane foam is 95-100% breathable allowing air to circulate through the sockliner.
Zoom Air Bag Heel - Nike Zoom technology combines pressurized air with internal fibers to deliver highly responsive cushioning that springs back fast for maximum impact protection.
