It’s been a long time since I went to my high school prom (I’ll spare myself the embarrassment and won’t tell you exactly how long it’s been), and when I look back, I wish I had done a few things differently.
I wish I had said “yes” to the boy who I had a crush on instead of rejecting him for fear that I would star in a real-life rendition of Carrie.
I would have gotten a limo and would have indulged in all the things that you’re supposed to indulge in when riding in the back of a limo.
And I would have worn more comfortable shoes…Chuck Taylors, to be specific.
So for all you high school students who are looking forward to your upcoming prom, heed my advice. Head over to Converse’s website and check out their killer shoes that are sure to match your tux or dress.
Ladies, there are Chuck Taylors in virtually every color, so you can get the pair that perfectly matches your dress, whether it’s sunset orange or plum purple. My favorite? Chuck Taylor Premium Sequins, a simple low-rise Chuck Taylor sneaker adorned with silver sequins and sure to give your ensemble a little bling-bling.
Gentlemen…what’s more classic than a sleek, black tuxedo? It will go with your date’s gown, even if she’s chosen a less-than-flattering color such as puke green or glaring gold. And a pair of Chuck Taylor Leather shoes will give your tux that extra class (and comfort) it will need to get you through the night.
So what kind of Chuck Taylors do you think you’ll be sporting for your prom this year?Chuck Taylor Premium Sequins photo and Chuck Taylor Leather photo taken from Converse.com.
