WATCH: Angelique Reichel – #ReadyForMore


Love your Chucks but can’t give up them up no matter the weather? Converse has you sorted with the new Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas Footwear and Apparel Collection.


The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II is a sneaker inspired by creative spirits that obsess over their passion; a sneaker for those who live in the moment. Parkour athlete Angelique Reichel, is a balance of contradictions; gentle yet powerful; a tough tomboy yet sparkly girly-girl.


“I rock heels in business & Sneakers on the street. My signature style is a merge of the two worlds. I am a gentle soul with a wild side,” she says.


What’s important to the lifestyle manager and assistant parkour coach?
“Freedom, Movement, pushing limits, Parkour. I am an athlete, I am a Free runner.”


Watch Angelique show how she is always #readyformore in the video.


The Chuck Taylor All Star II is designed to meet the demands of the creative lifestyle and is built for the next generation of self-expression. Now, this beloved classic receives an innovative refresh, with product enhancements that stay true to the time-honoured aesthetic while also providing modern comfort solutions in a premium execution.


The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II is ready for more, boasting the most recognisable exterior attributes of the original Chuck Taylor All Star. Constructed from durable premium canvas, the exterior of the Chuck Taylor All Star II elevates the sneaker’s most recognizable features with premium details.


Converse has combined the classic sneaker designs with premium weatherised features tackling the elements of weather head-on this season. The innovative sneaker collections feature a bold mix of colours and materials including water repellent canvas and waterproof neoprene. This collection is intended to stand up against unpredictable inclement weather.
