This conveniently-timed release from the people over at Converse salutes American soldiers that enlisted in the war effort back in 1942 in the name of freedom and independence. Originally produced to outfit troops for training purposes, the vintage Chuck Taylor is being reissued in a true original look, sporting a distressed canvas build, aged laces and original toebox pattern, ankle patch and outsole design. Each shoe also features the original government contract number 50475 stamped along the inner liner. Limited to 200 pairs, you can grab yours today at Converse.
