Converse All Stars were meant to be worn in warm weather and tucked away when the winter season’s rain, snow and slush rolls around.

Birthed from Converse’s vintage Extreme Cold Weather Boot–a rubber utility boot that was first introduced in the 1950s– the Mountain Club collection takes Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star and Fastbreak designs to create functional, military-inspired boots that are durable enough to withstand any weather condition. Each shoe is coated in Durable Weather Repellent (DWR) that protects the boot’s exterior from becoming waterlogged, and breathable, Gore-Tex fabric to keep your feet dry inside.
Converse Mountain Club collection ranges from $120-$150 and will be available at converse.com and at select retailers starting November 8.
