Style Pick of the Week: Converse Chuck Taylor 70 Sneakers

Classic sneakers that are as good as it gets.

Folks, what better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a truly iconic, all-American pair of sneakers — some of the most classic, best men’s sneakers in this country (and on the planet)? So it goes with the instantly recognizable, very easy-to-wear, cool-as-can-be Converse Chuck Taylor 70. An iconic pair of sneakers since day one (and available in unisex sizing), they could just be the best sneakers to buy now  — particularly if you’re feeling very, very patriotic. And heck, if you simply need a new pair of affordable low-top sneakers at a great price? My friends, Converse sneakers are here for you — to say the very least.

I’ve been a fan of Converse since my college days, when I would pick up a pair at my local mall, but since we’re all doing things a little bit differently these days, I’d say you should go right ahead and order your new favorite sneakers from the good folks at Need Supply Co. OK, now that that’s out of the way … let’s talk about ’em. If you follow our See Now, Buy Now series, it might seem surprising that Converse hasn’t come up before. The brand is an American institution after all, founded more than 100 years ago. And that’s actually great news: The Converse Chuck Taylor 70 are so well-executed, they’re as timeless as it gets.

Simple, straightforward and yet oh-so-stylish.

If you’ve been searching for some of the best sneakers under $100, these are unequivocally it. Made from durable textile with an equally durable rubber outsole, they should provide plenty of all-day comfort, whether you throw them on to run socially distanced errands around town or a take a masked stroll in your local park. The thing about the Converse Chuck Taylor 70 is that they’re so timeless, you can style them with practically anything. Slim light wash jeans and a classic white tee (like the one seen here)? Go for it. A slub polo and olive chino shorts? For sure. A rugged henley and  black denim? Yes, you can rock the Converse Chuck Taylor 70 with that outfit, as well.

You can even take these classic sneakers for a spin at the office with dark blue denim, a navy cotton blazer and an Oxford shirt (when we can all return to offices, that is). But for right now, I’d suggest you wear your new favorite sneakers with all the casual trappings of summer to enjoy breezy days — a cool craft beer growler, a stylish Bluetooth speaker and your feet kicked up, Converse on. What could be better, right?
