I'm in LOVE with Chuck!
Chuck Taylor, that is! ♥
I've had this love affair going on since I was a teenager of 13 and got my first pair of white high top Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers, then proceeded to write all over them with markers, making them truly my own.
Over the years Chuck has never left my side...he's always in my closet, although now that I'm older and a little more conservative, I prefer he keep a lower profile, so I stick with low-rise. ;)
Back when I was 13 and donning my first pair so proudly, I never thought I'd still be wearing Converse at the ripe old age of 43, but here I am...my favorites are my light pink ones,
but I have the standard white, and my feet have proudly worn so many colors and patterns of Converse over the years, from purple, to plaid, and all things in between.
Believe it or not, they can be a great conversation starter! Haha! Seriously I couldn't tell you how many times someone has said, "I love your shoes!" and we get to chatting... maybe people don't expect to see a 40-something paraplegic donning bright chucks...but I do, not always, but LOTS. :)
Oops - I've rambled so much I almost forgot the reason I decided to blog about this in the first place...I'm helping my son pick out his tux to wear to his girlfriends senior prom, and I told him I thought it would be awesome if he wore some high top Chuck Taylors with his tux, and I directed him to the Converse website which has an ENTIRE PROM COLLECTION! Is that not the most cool thing ever?!
Anyway, I've fawned enough over my guy Chuck...don't want to get my hubby jealous!
