With the unpredictable weather nowadays, having ready with your rainy apparel is not enough. You need to be in your mandirigma mode everyday to survive the changing weather.

Rainy boots are so out of fashion in this OOTD generation. What most people need now is fashionable footwear that can survive floodwaters and suit any kind of weather.

You can now strut your sneakers in any kind of weather condition as Converse recently launched its Fall/Holiday 2016 Counter Climate Footwear Collection that features design and tools to combat the unpredictable weather.

The said new collection is divided into three categories – Shield Canvass, Leather, and Rubber. Though made from different materials, they all have one main purpose – to counter the climate.

Just recently, Iloilo Bloggers were invited to an intimate media session at Converse store in Robinsons Place Iloilo to officially introduce the Converse Fall/Holiday 2016 Counter Climate Footwear Collection.

Converse Philippines PR Officer Jeff Osoc traced back the history of Converse on how it became one of the biggest and popular names when it comes to sneakers.

With more than 100 years of experience in the industry, I must say that the brand has already mastered the needs of every consumer that they serve.

Proof of that fact are the three segments of Converse namely Cons which are most popular among the skaters, Chucks which suit the lifestyle of the hippy millennials, and the Jack Purcell which is famous for its simple design with a smiley displayed on its sole.
