Models, Muscians and Chucks

OR: Perfect Summer Shoes

Hello,

Yesterday I explained my truancy. To be perfectly honest, I was off running about in my new shoes. I decided during our first week of hot weather that I wasn’t going to sit inside.

I also decided that I wasn’t going to wear gladiator sandals this summer. I wanted something a bit more classic and versatile.

So I bought these: Converse double tongue Chuck Taylors from Office.

This might also have a little something to do with why…

    I have a pair but I never wear them after the time I wore them to a concert in December and my toe went numb. I have a terribly hard time finding shoes.

    Great minds think alike. Bought my first pair of Converse (bright red) a week ago and might have just ditched my heals for the summer. Love them.

    I haven’t bought a pair since nike took them over and the oxfam store that sold the fair trade ones shut down. My first pair of cons wwere navy and i got them when I was 16, I thought I was great because my favourite bands at the time wore them and my mum wouldn’t allow me to get a pair, she said I would get fallen arches. My second pair were pink – I regret it now. I then got black ones. And finally tartan, that I added lace to and still love!

    However, I want a classic pair of shoes to wear with summer dresses! I didn’t like any of the cons or fred perrys they had in Office so the search continues!

    Basically, good call!

    That little Converse montage has reminded me why they’re just so damn great. I’ll be digging my two pairs out soon enough thanks to your inspiration!
