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.

They call me Mister Tibbs, or should we say, Sidney Poitier. In the 1970 crime drama featuring Sydney Poitier as a San Francisco detective, a pair of Chucks are used to find clues that eventually solve the mysterious case. They weren’t kidding when they said that these sneaks were Classics’, keep it up Converse!
Ever heard of Zappos.com? Zappos.com is a shoe and apparel website that was recently acquired by Amazon. However, their business structure is still operating as a separate entity from Amazon.com. Zappos is all about customer service and for each and every pair of shoes they sell online they have a video describing colors, look and feel, and sometimes a bit of culture about the shoe as well.
What’s different about Zappos is that you can order a pair of shoes, try them on, and send them back if you don’t like them – Zappos will cover all shipping costs. It’s a nice touch to the struggles of online shopping – especially for shoes.
