Chuck Taylor All Stars

The Chuck Taylor All Star is virtually synonymous with sneakers. When someone mentions sneakers, a vision of Chuck Taylors should pop into your head. The shoes were first created by the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in 1917 and was known the All Star. Then a professional basketball player name Charles “Chuck” Taylor became a spokesman for the company and tweaked the design enough that they became known as the Chuck Taylor All Star. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns but they are all distinctly Chuck Taylors. They are an iconic shoe, easily recognized and embraced by cool and casual people everywhere. They are the epitome of comfort. You’ll buy a pair of Chucks and wear them every day until they fall apart. They are the staple footwear of concertgoers and festival attendees everywhere. I just spent the weekend at Outside Lands and saw a pair of Chuck Taylors on every fifth person, myself included. I don’t rock my Chucks every day, but I always feel like I’m apart of an exclusive club when I do.
