Let’s Talk About Chuck’s…Love Them!

converse

Converse Runners are an epic fashion trend right now. I have loved them forever & they have popped up in fashion 3 different times in my 56 years…Holy, tres cool.
Converse runners are called “Chucks” cuz why???? Well cuz Charles Hollis “Chuck” Taylor (June 24, 1901 – June 23, 1969…ok, ok I am dating myself) was an American basketball player & he loved his Converse High Top’s. Taylor started wearing them in 1917 as a high school basketball player, started working for Converse & changing the design of the shoe to provide enhanced flexibility and support, and also including patch to protect the ankle, were adopted. The All-Star star logo was then immediately included on the patch. By 1923 Chuck Taylor’s name was added to the patch, and the shoe became the Chuck Taylor All-Stars.
hallelujah!!!
It’s hard to find pictures in any fashion style with “normal” looking peop’s like you & I (put your thumb over the face, this could be you), so let your imagination go while looking at below styles you can totally do with “Chucks”!
