We all have friends that substitute black on black Converse Chuck Taylors for dress shoes, did you ever think someone would sport Chuck Taylors at their wedding?
Alana and Brandon of Los Angeles tied the knot in October of 2008. Their traditional American wedding had something very non traditional about it. The groom and all his groomsmen were fitted with original low top Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. With the groomsmen looking dapper as can be, the Chuck Taylors were said to be “very typical of the groom”.
The choice of shoes was an interesting twist to the wedding and showed true dedication to the Chuck Taylor culture from a couple that met on a plane.
John Varvatos released a shoe line in collaboration with Converse and the Chuck Taylor model was redesigned among many other styles. Along with the newly released models, Converse promoted the “Get Chucked” campaign through a series of casual scenes contrasted and tied together with suggestive provocative scenes. Chuckverse.com is asking Chuck Taylor fans out there to take another look into the “Get Chucked” release for the 2010 Holiday Season.

If you live in an area where it seldom snows you may have never experienced the inconvenience of the wet, snowy, nearly frost bitten feeling you get when wearing your Chuck Taylors in the cold. As you are trailing about through the miniature ice mountains on the sidewalk you may even think that wearing your Chucks in the snow was a bad idea (gasp). Fortunately for us, we can still rock the Chucks while going through the snow with the Outsider models that are available from Converse. Converse Chuck Taylor Outsiders come in a variety of styles and colors so be sure to leave room for a few pairs in your collection.
