The original All-Stars are high-tops, but don't consider the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star SP Ox athletic inspired shoes blasphemous. Think of them instead like the convertible model of a classic car. We all love the Chucks' legendary original design, but sometimes it's nice to let the top down and catch some fresh air. Yes, your ankles appreciate the extra support of those timeless patched high-rise models, but did it ever occur to you that those pasty ankles might appreciate a little sunlight every once in a while? The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star SP Ox are about as open air as Chucks are probably going to get, unless, of course, you take a pair of scissors to your All-Stars to make some Chuck Taylor flip-flops, in which case may the shoe gods smite you with athlete's feet and ingrown toenails for such heresy.
