This is what Chuck Taylors are supposed to look like

So we’ve all heard about the “worn” look on any Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker, but how do you get that clean cut look that’s just enough rough and also looks great with your best pair of slacks?

The answer is hand-dying them. That’s what Tenue de Nimes does and you can get your very own pair.

This is by far the best look we’ve seen with the freshness of a new pair of shoes but the worn out look to show that your Chucks have character. The best part about it is that you can rough them up and add your own stories to these pari of beautiful sneaks, and the stylized colorations will remain.

We give these Chucks 10/10 for their beauty, artistic style, and it’s just a damn good story to say that your Chucks were hand dyed. But, with everything great in life, it comes with a hefty price tag.

Let’s Talk About Joggers

Okay, first things first. Joggers, they’re here to stay. There are a lot of people that are putting down joggers, but we don’t feel that way.

Joggers go especially well with Chucks. Here’s how to do it:

Low Tops
If you are sporting the low tops, go with no show socks or no socks at all. This is the best way to show off your freedom of the wind flowing past your ankles. This works for both guys and adventerous girls.

High Tops
If you are wearing high tops, socks can be a bit longer since you probably won’t be catching a glimpse. Sport high tops, leathers, or Chuck Taylor II with your joggers. It gives you that rugged look and depending on the joggers you have, maybe even a bit of casual vs professional mixed in. Trust us, it works!

Go for it! And let us know how it looks by showing us some Twitter and Instagram love.

Let Your Chuck Taylor All-Stars Be Your Hero

Comic books are fun. They’re filled with exciting, death-defying heroes who risk it all to save the innocent.

Chuck Taylor All-Stars are fun. They’re comfy, and they give us all a sense of whimsy and childhood freedom.

And now, those two fun things are combined in the DC Comics line of Converse shoes—and no, they’re not just for the kiddies.

Converse recently released a line of comic-inspired shoes that are dying to make their way to your feet. Batman and Superman make an appearance, as do other favorite comic book characters such as Batwoman and the Riddler. My favorite? The customizable version, which allows you to choose between fun Joker, Riddler, and Batman prints or all-over color—with a few comic book touches here and there.

Check out the collection for yourself over at Converse’s website, and then let us know—which DC Comics pair of Chuck Taylors is your favorite?
