First, the good news: The sneakers still look exactly the same with a few new comfort-imbued features, like Converse's parent brand Nike Lunarlon lining and foam padded collars. All hail, comfortable Converse (since that's what sneakers are supposed to be!).
“The launch of Chuck II is a groundbreaking moment for Converse as we continue to move the brand forward through creativity and innovation, ushering in not just a new sneaker, but a completely new way of thinking,” president and CEO at Converse Jim Calhoun, said in a statement.

The bad news: They're more expensive, but only $15-$20 more, so you'll be paying around $70 for low tops and $75 for high-tops to up your Chucks.
The new, sleek spinoffs will be available in black, white, red and blue when they launch in stores on Tuesday!
