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!

Did you get cool Chucks for the holidays? Let us know on twitter @chuckverse.

Battle Scars

Do you remember getting that first hole in your beloved pair of Chucks? Battle scars I like to call them. My current Chucks (aka my Daily Driver Chucks) got their first tear at an Against Me! concert in Bloomington Illinois. I specifically remembered that night, not only because the pit severely brutalized my Chucks but because my friends and I got into a heated debate with another concert goer whether PF Flyers or Chucks were more original. I think we know how that one turned out.

Since then, my daily drivers have been pretty beat up but they are still holding up strong. I think that I have a unique story for each pair of Chucks that I own, all starting with the first little rip.
