Because they’re lightweight and quick-drying, Converse Chuck Taylors have always been popular with guides. Problem is, they shred easily and offer scant protection. Chaco’s high-top take on that low-tech classic is superior in every way: it’s tougher (the uppers are made with Cordura and reinforced with rubber), it dries faster, and the Vibram sole is grippier.
