Speaking of Converse, I attended the Converse Fall-Holiday 2016 Media Preview last September 5, 2016 at the Sky High Bar, Ace Hotel and Suites, Pasig. Media allies from television, print and digital world and more than 10 celebrity influencers graced the event with acoustic performances by KA & Z and 90's iconic rock band, The Dawn.
Check out this round up of new kicks that will surely cure your rainy blues.

The new collections provide the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts while emphasizing essential weather-beating benefits. The innovative sneaker collections feature a bold mix of colors and materials including water repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene. Divided into three unique categories: Shield Canvas, Leather and Rubber-- these collections are intended to stand up against the unpredictable inclement weather.
Each sneaker has been treated to help tackle rainy weather while maintaining comfort and style. The Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas sneakers have been given a DWR (durable water repellant) treatment, standing guard as the first line of defense against the rain.
For the holiday season, both new and time-honored styles endure the harsh elements with the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention.
