Have you noticed? - October 26, 2009

For the last month it seems that every show on TV and every movie I rent or attend has a New Converse Chuck Taylor All Star on the foot of one of the stars. The latest was my rental of Slumdog Millionaire. Right smack dab in the middle or the scene at the Taj Mahal, there is a kid stealing a pair of Canvas Optic White Chucks. Will the appearance of the Chuck Taylor All Star never end?
No. Why should it? The shoe is the only one that transcends all people, continents, and even our own neighborhood. Try them again for the first time.
No matter what you call them Chucks to Skids, no matter what the language, they are still Americas best gift to the foot.
