Converse just gave us an excuse to live in our Chuck Taylors. The shoe brand has launched the newly-improved Chuck Taylor All Star II, available in stores today.

Upgrades on the sneaker include the lightweight Lunarlon sockliner, used in Nike shoes, for extra cushioning and arch support (hello, comfort). The new design is rounded up by a padded non-slip tongue, micro-suede lining for breathability and "premium canvas."

The Chuck Taylor All Star II retails for RM269.90 (Low Top) and RM289.90 (Hi Top). Each version comes in black, red, blue and white. Take our money.
