Converse has used two names for this shoe:
Also, some boxes call what I call the "high-top" a "mid-top." My comment about that is that it's every bit as high-topped as the classic Converse "Chuck Taylor" All-Star canvas sneaker.
Converse has had suede sneakers for years, most constantly
under the name "One Star." In the 1970's, they had a
"stripe-star-stripe" suede All Star, a "star and chevron" All Star, and a
suede model in their COACH line.
Chuck", from fall 1999, appears even closer in design to the traditional canvas
Taylor" All Star than it is the One Star. The major visible design difference is
that both the front and the back have "rubber bumper" material. On the dark blue
EZ Chuck, it should be noted that the outsole is also dark blue!
Unfortunately, if you want a brown pair: As of late September 1999, Converse had shipped their entire production run of brown EZ Chuck shoes.
the One Star, Converse did not forget the high-top
fan. The EZ Chuck also comes in a high-top version!
a difference from the canvas "Chuck Taylor" All
Star? Yes, of course! The Buick
portholes are on the inside and the Chuck
patch is on the outside!
EZ Chuck is also in a color that Converse calls "Mercury Grey."
blue, or "Navy," completes the EZ Chuck color choices.
