Some ideas don't work out so well (ahem vintage running shoes) others, are genius. Take making the ever-popular Chuck Taylor into functional skate sneaker. Converse nailed it with their new skate line with this CTS model being the standout. Comfort-wise expect a thicker tongue, and a sole that's a bit more padded than the extremely flat original CT. If you're having trouble locating the sneakers, hit up KCDC in Brooklyn who's accepting phone orders and won't judge you if you're not a skater.
