The time has finally come for tactical Chucks.
It was just a year ago ITS Tactical blogger Bryan Black rounded up 1,000 signatures on a petition to Converse. The petition asked Converse to produce tactical Chucks that Bryan spotted at SHOT Show 2010. Less than 12 months later a version of the original tactical Chucks have been spotted online. So, can he claim mission accomplished?
Not just yet.
It appears that Converse has already sold out of this limited edition shoe. In fact, according to commenters on ITS Tactical, the company only made 200 pairs and is now taking pre-orders for a shipment due in near the end of April. You’d think they would have at least produced 1,000 pairs to cover those who signed the petition, right? Perhaps this is only the beginning…
If you have your eyes on a new pair of tactical kicks and don’t want to wait any longer, also consider PF Flyers, as Black suggests.

What do you think of the new tactical Chucks? Do you prefer the PF Flyers?
