A Very Chuck Taylor Wedding

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.

Stilettos + Converse = Awesome

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?
 

Chucks in the wash

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.

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.

 

Chucks for Christmas

So every single Christmas I asked for one thing. The one thing you can never have enough of, and I’m not talking about chocolate or the greens. I’m talking about Chucks. Often times confused by parents for “Chuck” as in “Talk to Chuck” or Charles Schwab, but not, I am not looking for an investment portfolio. I am looking for some classic Chuck Taylor sneakers, whether hi top to lo top, they are always on my list. This year I have been looking for some hi top leather slims in black. Please stuff my stockings with the Chucks Mr. Santa!
