Cohesive Classics

I'm sure that by now it has become more than clear that 7 inch D&G wedges and YSL platforms are not my natural aesthetic. While I admirably gaze at sky scraper heels and strappy stilettos with the best of 'em; I'm most me in a cool pair of sneakers, preferably Converse Chuck Taylors, which I lovingly refer to simply as "chux".

Chuck Taylors win hands down as the coolest shoe to ever grace the streets. From the eighties to the present, it seems that Chucks have easily proven themselves as the definition of "classic". Whether you're the hipster, gangster, or even the glamazon; Chuck Taylors offer comfort, class, and versatility that anyone can relate to. With tons of different styles and designs, not to mention one of the best price tags you'll find when it comes to footwear, it's hard not to get a little carried away, as I bought my ninth pair just last week.

My favorite thing about Chucks is the mega versatility they allow. I'm not sure if it's a universal thing or just my personal style, but Chucks serve as the perfect accompaniment to leggings, skinny jeans, and even dresses. I run, dance, and work in my Chuck Taylors, all the while looking cool doing it, and with the comfort of knowing my feet won't hurt at the end of the day.

Classic Coolness and Comfortability, what more can you ask for?

Those chucks are awesome :) I love loev love your tights as well. I'm really into both actually, but comfort is the key for me. I tend to go for my Chucks on a day when I know I'll be running around, and heels (hardly ever!) Flats are what I tend to wear the most <3

Hey Dannie! I love Chucks too! Unfortunatly - the shoe store I work at doesn't sell them :( But I got highlighter/fluro pink ones which are lower cut and are comfyer than any other Chucks I've ever worn because they're low cut! I'm wearing them in this post I made here... Tell me what you think? http://lovetolovetoloveyou.blogspot.com/2009/10/up-tree.html
