The Converse Chuck Taylor is a classic basketball silhouette which has been re-issued a plethora of times over the course of the past few years. This time around, Converse is releasing the sneaker with two leather ankle straps that definitely give the classic sneaker a modern twist. The first pair of the Chuck Taylor High Strap hosts a simple white on white colorway with black accents on the mid-sole. The second style yields a black base with white and metallic gold accents. The Converse Chuck Taylor High Strap is expected to release in the Fall and Winter of 2009.
