Stay Styling when it Rains in Cons rubber Kicks

Rain and J’s just don’t go together at all. Next time it pours get your Cons on. Converse is getting ready to debut their rubber versions of the long-standing, iconic street and court Chuck Taylor All-Star High-Top.  The perfect cop for your rain gear wardrobe. These kicks have a Wellington style upper that provides awesome protection from water situations. They also have a nice soft fleece lining, brass eyelets and a gusseted tongue.  The Rubber Kicks go on sale on September 15, 2014 in the USA. In-store and keep an eye out for them on-line. Adults ($65) Kids ($45)

Looks like a great shoe to wear in the slush in New York City, to a big muddy music fest or on a hike on a rainy day. I’m kinda digging the Purple or Yellow pair or maybe the white and I’ll trick them out with some colorful sharpies.  There is possibly a blue pair out there somewhere?  Just hard to find the picture.  Below are 5 of the colors. According to Converse there are 7 total color-ways.  Some websites say 6 and funny thing is there are pictures on the web of  of just 5 (9/7/14). Looks like Cons is keeping us on alert. Maybe a flourescent pink for October or I bet they come out with a hunter green or even a camo down the line.

Here’s a look at 5 of the bold, buttery, eye-catching, monochromatic, rain resistant colors:

What do you think of the new kicks? See you on the streetz of Honolulu.This Sunday I’ll be at Inspiration Furniture, the Hawaii Woman Expo and the BIA Hawaii Remodel it Green Remodel it Right show. Then Hopefully home for some food and rest. Have a nice Sunday. Ciao and Aloha. SM on SB.
