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.

Converse goes after the copycats

According to an NBC News article entitled “Converse Sues 31 Companies Over Alleged Chuck Taylor Knockoff Sneakers”, trademark infringements have been filed against manufactures of Chuck Taylor look-a-likes. Nike, the parent company of Converse, has pointed fingers at brands such as Walmart, Kmart, and Sketchers for creating variations of the popular sneaker.

The New York Times writes about these variations in an in-depth article.
