This one was a no-brainer. The CONS CTS Ox looks just like your Chuck Taylor All Star, but packs a few extra features. The canvas and laces are “high abrasion” (whatever that means) and there is padding on the tongue and ankle. It’s not crazy, but I rock a pair of CTS Mids and there is definitely a difference in comfort. The regular All Stars have no support at all; definitely wouldn’t wear a pair of those skating. These, though, are a great upgrade and a classic in my opinion.
