CHUCK TAYLORS - A LIFETIME OF APPRECIATION

Posted on January 28 2020

 

IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, I WANTED A PAIR OF NAVY BLUE AND WHITE CHUCK TAYLORS.

 

TO ME, THEY WERE FRESH AS HELL!!!

 

 

 

MY DAD TOLD ME THEY WERE TOO EXPENSIVE.

 

AT THE TIME, KINNEY SHOES SOLD A CLONE VERSION, NAMED “NBA”. I THINK THIS WAS A MIDWEST THING.  I'M FROM NORTH CHICAGO, AND I'VE SEEN NAME VARIATIONS THAT WERE POPULAR IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. THEY WERE ALMOST IDENTICAL; BUT A CLOSE FRIEND RECENTLY REMINDED ME, WHEN I CALLED HIM PRIOR TO WRITING THIS POST, THAT THE ROUND LOGO WAS LOCATED ON THE OUTSIDE PANEL OF THE SHOE.  THE LOGO ON CHUCK TAYLORS IS LOCATED ON THE INSIDE PANEL.

 

THE LARGE EYELIDS WERE PERFECT FOR TWO PAIRS OF LACES TOO.  MINE WERE BLUE AND WHITE.  I WANTED TO CREATE THAT CHECKERBOARD PATTERN.  HOWEVER, EACH TIME I TRIED, SOMETHING JUST WASN’T QUITE RIGHT.  A GUY I’VE KNOWN SINCE GRADE SCHOOL, TIMOTHY “SPIDERMAN” CANSLER (THE SECOND MOST NATURALLY GIFTED ATHLETE I’VE EVER MET, NEXT TO HIS YOUNGER BROTHER CASEY…R.I.H.), SHOWED ME HOW TO PROPERLY CREATE THAT PATTERN.

 

MAN, THIS POST IS REALLY TAKING ME BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD.

 

ALL THAT TO SAY, I WAS SUPER HAPPY WITH THE RESULT!

 

 

NOW, FAST-FORWARD TO TODAY.  CURRENTLY, I HAVE 27 PAIRS OF CHUCK TAYLORS, IN MULTIPLE FABRICS AND DESIGNS.  (THE IMAGES IN THIS POST ARE OF MY COLLECTION.)  MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITES ARE THOSE SPECIALTY PAIRS, CREATED BY DESIGNER JOHN VARVATOS.  MANY OF HIS DESIGNS USE MATERIALS LIKE STAPLES, SPIKES, STUDS AND MULTIPLE COLORS OF LEATHERS AND SUEDE.

I DON’T CONSIDER MYSELF A SNEAKER-HEAD.  HOWEVER, I DEFINITELY HAVE AN AFFINITY FOR CHUCK TAYLORS, ONE OF THE OLDEST SNEAKERS EVER DESIGNED, SOLD AND CLONED.

 

MAYBE I SHOULD APPROACH CONVERSE ABOUT CREATING A LINE, DESIGNED BY ME.

 

IT COULD BE NAMED:  "THE BOWTIE COLLECTION"

 

(THAT SOUNDED EVEN BETTER TO ME, WHEN I SAID IT OUT LOUD.)

 


 

EVEN THOUGH THIS POST ISN'T ABOUT J'S, I BELIEVE  SPIKE LEE'S CHARACTER MARS BLACKMON SAID IT BEST,  "IT'S GOTTA BE THE SHOES."

 

THIS MAKES ME WONDER, DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE A SNEAKER THEY PREFER, OWN MULTIPLE CONFIGURATIONS OF AND STILL ROCK TODAY?  LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW.

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.

 

BOWTIE.
