There was a time, way back in it's history, when the Converse Company (aka Boston Rubber Shoe Company) was all about finding ways of putting rubber underneath men's feet.
They weren't just about racquet sport shoes (Jack Purcell) or basketball (Chuck Taylor).
Instead, they made hunting boots. And they are again - in a fashion forward kind of way.
This season they've release a set of rubber soled, leather upper boots that are right on trend with the back to roots among the masculine. In black or brown, they sell for around $140. Try Gravity Pope in Vancouver to find them.
