Today I got a pair of the greatest shoes ever made. Yep, I got a pair of Chuck Taylors! I don’t know why… But shoes make me happy! And these… these are not just any shoes! These are the legendary, the one and only, the most recognized shoe in the world… The classic Black High Top Chuck Taylor, the first ones ever made!
Having these shoes is very nostalgic… Since they’ve been around for my entire time on this planet! I had a pair as a teenager, and now I have them again. How many people can say that they were able to get the same pair of shoes they rocked over 14 years ago?! I remember I used to write on mine… The White rubber was perfect for doodling and drawing on with a standard Blue Bic pen! I’d write crazy things on my shoes and literally cover them with words and little symbols.
Ohhh the memories that these shoes bring me! What about you? Did you have a pair? Do you have a pair now?
