Love chucks but need more durability and skate-specific function? Well, Converse had the same idea, which is where the CT XL Skate Shoe came from. Based off input from the Converse skate team, the designers started with the All Star silhouette, and kept the iconic toe cap and vulcanized sole for superior board feel. From there, they padded the collar and the tongue for extra protection, and beefed up the midsole for extra protection against bruised feet. Plus this shoe is backed by the heavy hitting Cons skate team, so you know it's ready to shred.
