Yesterday, I was surprised with a care package from Converse Canada containing their brand new Counter Climate winter boot. I was hit with the ultra clean ‘Mason’ colourway, but they’re also available in multiple other colours, as well as a few women’s variations.
The boot is completely waterproof, which is absolutely a must. And also features a nylon interior booty to help keep you warm. The sleek design and lack of usual bulk that is common on other boots will make these perfect for every day wear. The nubuck upper adds a hint of style while also rounding out the climate-proof function of the sneaker. To bring the comfort to another level, Converse even blessed these with a full length Lunarlon insole. Slapped with a deep and durable rubber tread on the bottom and you’ve got yourself an extremely winter-ready footwear choice.
I was privileged enough to receive a special media version of the sneaker, which came with some super dope packaging. The shoe box was replaced with a crazy heat-reactive box that is activated by the warmth of your body. The inside was filled to the brim with fake snow, and the sneakers themselves were housed in a reflective ziplock bag. I’m a sucker for special packaging, so you know I’m keeping all these awesome accessories in my collection forever.
The new Converse Counter Climate collection is available now at Foot Locker, Brown’s Shoes, and Little Burgundy, as well as here on Converse.ca, with a retail of $150.00.
