How Cool Is The New Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “Cigarpocket” Sneaker?

Submitted by on August 16, 2013 – 10:10 amNo Comment

There are very few things that Converse can really do to change the look and feel of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker. Change the color? Sure, they do that all the time but it still basically looks like the same sneaker. Change the upper to include graphics? Yeah, they’ve done that quite a few times as well, but at its core, the sneaker is still a Chuck Taylor All Star. Change the laces? They’ve obviously done that, too, from time and time. And while it does alter the look of the sneaker a little bit, it’s not exactly a revolutionary change.

So it’s kind of cool to see what Converse has done with a new version of the Chuck Taylor All Star that’s already been dubbed the “Cigarpocket.” It features everything that the typical Chuck Taylor All Star features. But it also has a unique pocket on the side of it that’s meant to resemble the small pocket that’s on the side of flight jackets. That pocket has caused all of the smokers out there to dub the sneaker the “Cigarpocket,” and it’s also given the Chuck Taylor All Star a pretty fresh look. It’s not completely different from what you would expect from Converse. But it is a cool new take on the traditional Chuck Taylor concept.

Converse is making the “Cigarpocket” sneaker available in both an olive colorway and a navy colorway. Do you like what Converse has done here and would you be interested in adding the “Cigarsneaker” to your collection of Chuck Taylors? Or do you think Converse took too much of a risk here by designing a sneaker that’s supposed to look like a jacket? Take a closer look at the sneaker below and then let us know what you think about it. It will be hitting select Converse retailers soon. Will you be first in line for a pair?
