 Popular footwear company, Converse, has finally updated their Chuck Taylor’s by making a more supportive version of the shoe to be known as Chuck Taylor All Star II. The new Chucks include lining, upgraded tongue and patch, and cushioning to support the feet. Since Converse was acquired by Nike in the early 2000s, the Chuck II uses Nike’s plush cushioning technology to provide a springy insert created with layers of foam. All of the upgrades were created to make converses more comfortable and supportive for the high volume of consumers.

The Importance of Proper Foot Support

Walking is an everyday function for both men and women, and in order to keep your body’s balance in order, you are going to need shoes that provide the proper kinds of support. 

Poor foot support can cause pain and discomfort in the lower back, hips, knees, neck and shoulder. It also can lead to emotional stress, and physiological changes in the body. In order to avoid these problems, you must have proper foot support.

The arch is the most important part of the foot, which is where most of the support and balance of your feet lies. The arch of your foot varies in height, and as you age, this height can change. Proper foot support will help musculoskeletal issues, which causes inactivity or disability.

When looking for shoes that give proper support to your feet, you should refrain from wearing ill-fitting shoes.  If footwear is too tight, this can affect the body’s posture, stress, bone deformities, and other foot and back pain. Therefore, it is important that shoes fit well in order to avoid these complications.
