Converse has finally returned to the performance running category, albeit it's through their One Star brand exclusively sold at Target and Amazon. Below are the two men colorways in white/navy/yellow and the black/white/silver. There is also a womens colorway in sliver/blue.
Also in the shoe is Converse's new cushioning technology named "Converse Sense." I don't know much about it other then it appears to be a foam based system. I hope to have more information soon.

Here is the Women's colorway
I'm obviously very excited, this is the first time Converse has offered a performance running shoe since...well around 2000 when they had one Helium running shoe release. I hope this is a sign of things to coming from the Star and Chevron side of Converse. Anyway, follow along for more updates on twitter @TheConverseBlog
It looks like Converse is using Nike's Phylite midsole/outsole fusion for the Converse Sense last...which makes sense if you're over tried on a Nike shoe that features Phylite in that way, because it does provide a lightweight, more body-friendly feel...you can sense the difference between those shoes and shoes with a lot of rubber on them (which this Converse does not have).
This converse ist best to nike! Great !
