One of the cultural icons of our generation is to see the Chuck Taylor come into play on a couple’s very special day. The wedding day. Typically seen as part of the groomsman’s uniform, we received a message from a Photography company that had a very cool take on bringing Chuck Taylors to the ceremonious day.
Something that we have never seen during our search for Chuck Spotting, the tip we got was about custom monogrammed Chuck Taylors. Yes, weddings these days have their own logos and their own websites and in San Francisco might even have their own apps! There’s no doubt that SnapChat filters are a popular wedding decoration as well. Nonetheless, these Chuck Taylors are amongst the coolest we have been able to spot. And, what a beautiful shot of the rings intertwined to these gorgeous custom pair of chucks.
You can view more photos from the couple’s beautiful wedding celebration on the Photographer’s website, Red Eye Collection.
Congrats Ashley and Malorie! Special thanks to Red Eye Collective for the photo, check them out if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Okay, let’s face it. Technology is changing and that means that we are seeing a lot of new styles when it comes to fashion and especially shoes. Outside of health benefits and ergonomics (I mean, the Chuck Taylors are super comfortable #amiright) we are seeing a lot of design changes.
TeenVogue reports on the new collection from Converse x Nike where they use the Flyknit fabrics and design styles on the Converse Chuck Taylor Sneaker. Sure, it’s not the standard canvas but do these look sweet. Plus, I bet they breathe really nicely which is great for Chucks.
They have the Toe Bumper, Stripe, and the insole of the Converse Chuck Taylor II so there is no doubt these will be some comfy sneakers.

Have you ever had to pick up a friend but was not sure of their exact location? How about on the other end of the spectrum where you’re being picked up by a friend but don’t know exactly where they’re at? There is a new app that just launched in Canada that is helping you do exactly that – know where your friends are at.
Pre lets you see exactly where your friends are – but not in a creepy way. Other apps always share your location or make it confusing to share your destination. Pre conveniently lets you send your close friends and family a destination and bonus: it has emojis 🎉.
You can check out Pre on the iOS app store. Looks like the app is currently launched in Canada. Be sure to snap photos of your Chuck Taylor sightings using the app! #chuckspotting

The Converse Essentials line was announced earlier this year. We caught a glimpse of the shop opening in Berlin, Germany.
The Essentials, a Fall 2016 collection bears some of the classics that have been a staple in Converse and American design/apparel. They claim that the essentials line “becomes even softer with each wear”. The collection, with the FRAGMENT label includes t-shirts, hoodies, and more.
Personally, I am a big fan of the classics and the Essentials line so this is something that I will be splurging on! Looking forward to a warm and cozy holiday season with this new line.
Chuck Taylor Fulton is out with new styles. The classic rubber sole with a modern sneaker look and a pull tab for the heel. The Chuck Taylor Fulton is a clean cut look on a classic sneaker.
The Fulton is currently on display at select Converse stores around the world. What makes these sneakers super fresh is the stylistic pattern on the side with a Converse fit but modern look.
The Converse Pride collection comes to us with vibrant rainbow colors and wild stylistic updates to our favorite Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Shoe. With Pride Parades coming to us throughout the nation, it’s a nice way to show off what we and others stand for – equality for all. San Francisco, being one of the largest pride parades in the nation, will kick off on June 25th so these Chucks come just in time for the festivities.
Not only are these styles fresh and bold, but they are a limited edition series so be sure to grab them while they are still available.
