Every once in a while I am walking down the street and I see a teenager, middle-age man, or even senior citizen taking a stroll on the same road. The thing they all may have in common? They are wearing Chucks.
Chuck Taylor shoes have lasted generations. Now, we can safely say that the selfie generation, millennials, baby boomers and beyond appreciate the simplicity of the Chuck Taylor shoe. I am currently sporting a pair of all black low tops.
What makes these shoes so classic? What makes these shoes so lovable? The price point has been reasonable for the longest time. The shoes look great when they are fresh or even scuffed up. They last until they literally don’t last anymore, and even them I’ve seen people wear the Chucks with duct tape holding them together. Usually that fits the teenage demographic.
Whats more, the clothing styles that these generations have sequestered always fit with the Chuck Taylor shoe. Although it’s not a “buy it for life” type of product. It’s definitely a “wear it for life” type of product. Few things can be considered as classic as the Chuck Taylor Shoe. Fewer things can be even considered as cool as the Chuck Taylor shoe. The Zippo lighter comes to mind.
So, for the love Chucks. If you have a Chuck Taylor story you would like to share with us, send us a tweet at @Chuckverse and share your story.
