One of the most popular sneakers in American culture just got an upgrade.

Converse unveiled a new version of the 98-year-old shoe Thursday.

It’s called the Chuck Taylor All Star 2.

Don’t worry, it still has the same classic exterior, but the difference is in the sole.

Converse’s parent company, Nike, has engineered a new, modern and cushioned foot bed.

The new version will become available on July 28, with high and low top models in four colors.

The original version will, of course, still be available.
