Chuck Taylor is my homeboy

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I'm becoming a little more obsessed with Converse. I got my second pair a couple weeks ago and I love them!
Here's a bit of history on the famous Chuck Taylor Converse high tops.
The shoes were not particularly popular until basketball player Chuck Taylor adopted them as his preferred shoe. He was impressed with the design so he became the shoe's leading salesman. After proposing a few changes to the shoe, and to switch to a nonslip sole, the shoe got its current name and Chuck Taylor's signature on its ankle All Stars patch.




I haven't been daring enough to wear the classic Chuck Taylor's but maybe that'll be my next daring fashion statement.

I was reading a blog recently and discovered that Converse is now making winter boots! They're very country/hick chic, and I am not ashamed to admit that I love being a country girl. Check them out.
