Flatforms aren’t new, and neither are Chucks, but we figured, these fresh sneakers deserve their 3 minutes of spotlight for today. Converse, the maker of sporty sneakers and athletic footwear, has just given its all-time popular “Chucks” a lift. The result — “flatform” Chucks that sit on 2 inches worth of rubber. Take a look at these styles from Nordstrom:
Converse Chuck Taylor Platform Hi Sneakers in Black and White, $70
Converse Chuck Taylor Double-Collar Platform Hi Sneakers, $80
Converse Chuck Taylor Platform Sneakers in Green and Black, $65
What do you think? Would you like a pair? Do you find these cute, or are these not your cup of tea? They’re chunky, yes, but the super thick rubber doesn’t look that bad, does it? Do you find the change too extreme? We actually wouldn’t mind giving them a spin. How about you?
