    A 17-piece Converse capsule collection, Urban Utility, available on December 5 will include the Chuck '70 Hiker, a Chuck Taylor All Star shoe "reconstructed" with Gore-Tex. According to its website, Gore-Tex is waterproof, wind-proof and breathable. Converse is a Nike Inc. brand. The collection is the result of a collaboration between Slam Jam, an Italian streetwear company, and the artist Cali Thornhill Dewitt. "The capsule is inspired by a generation that rallies around community and freedom of expression, and for whom functionality means nothing if it's creatively limiting," said a Converse release. The collection will also include a jacket made out of Gore-Tex fabric, tees and hoodies. Nike shares are up 19.4% for the past year, just above the S&P 500 index , which is up 19% for the period.
