In a country that’s really small, it’s pretty convenient to get around places. Just look at Orchard Road; the entire stretch is littered with malls and a mix of high-end and mass appeal boutique stores. Despite the heat, we’ve all done the whole “let’s-walk-from-one-end-to-the-other”, and it’s important to wear shoes that are functional, comfortable and of course, stylish. Knit sneakers – or shoes that have uppers woven out of thread rather than sewn with various materials – have become a huge trend to hit the streets. Besides providing higher flexibility and better comfort, it also reduces waste and looks pretty damn good. Converse has hopped on the bandwagon with their latest expression of the highly popular Chuck II. An ultra thin and interwoven knit material and striking colours inspired by the psychedelic light shows at music concerts and festivals are make up this fresh take on the classic silhouette to embody the spirit of summer. Together with the Nike Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue and super soft micro-suede lining, the Chuck II Knit provides enhanced comfort that’s on a whole other level. It’s the lightest and most breatheable Chuck II yet, and will be available in four colours – Volt Green, Roadtrip Blue, Red and White.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Knit Collection, $109.90-119.90. Available at Converse stores.
