So I’m not what you’d call a “girly-girl”. I rarely wear skirts or dresses. I live in my blue jeans. I take fifteen minutes to get ready. I don’t know the difference between an exfoliator and regular cleanser. And my favorite pairs of shoes are my various, brightly-colored Converse All-Stars.
But every once in a while, I want to strap on some stilettos, pull on a short dress, slap on some red lipstick, and feel like a chick should feel…but without losing what makes me, me.
So you can imagine my excitement when I found these high-heeled Converse-esque shoes at my local costume shop. I bought them immediately and pulled them on, feeling like a girly tomboy the entire time.
Now, my only question to Converse is this—when are you going to make some high-heeled Chuck Taylors so I can have an official pair instead of these knock-offs?
So, here’s the deal. My chucks started getting the kind of dirty that you don’t want to get (smelly) and summer is coming up. I threw my Chucks in the laundry machine and my roommate starts freakin’ out. He says “That’s counter productive”. He things that Chucks should be worn dirty, which I agree, but sometimes you need to perform some maintenance. Whether it’s ironing your shoe laces or giving your shoes the occasional wash. It’s a necessity.

If there is one thing we have been looking out for, it’s fly apparel that matches our favorite shoe. We’ve been dablling quite a bit, so in the meantime, be sure to check out the Please Potedo clothing line.
Your blank canvas
The Chuck Taylor All Star is recognized around the world as a symbol of originality and self-expression. The rubber-soled pioneers that put the ‘squeak’ in basketball have been an off-the-court favorite of rock stars and rebels for the past 60 years. And now, you can design your own pair.
Converse now allows you to design your own glow in the dark sneaker through Converse.com. Turn the lights out and start designing!
So, maybe I am in the wrong here, but why would you utilize a brand to spread the word when there is no direct relation? I just don’t get it. Regardless of the situation, we can all agree that the Chuck Taylor shoe has become more than just a sneaker, but an icon. I think this image says it all.
