All Stars

Meet Chuck Taylor: The Man Behind The Converse All Stars

I recently acquired my first pair of Chucks — high-tops in a bright blue-green. I’d never really paid that much attention to them before, but I confess, the first time I wore them I got more compliments on them than I could have possibly imagined. Is this what it feels like for everyone who puts effort into noticing fashion trends? I found it a bit unnerving.

Anyway, I found this to be an interesting article about the shoes’ namesake.
