A Twist on the Classic Shoe



There are types of shoes that have a timeless quality: weejuns/penny loafers, ballet flats, bucks, patent leather Mary Janes. And, for the more sporty variety, there are Converse All Stars, a.k.a., "Chuck Taylors."

My dad spied the latest rendition of the classic "Chucks" in a store window and had to get them for my daughter. Yes, those pink sparkly numbers above are Converse All Stars, and my little fashionista loves them. This child already has quite the fashion sense (can't imagine where she gets it), to the point one can envision her as a future contestant on Project Runway or a writer for Vogue. Yet, she tells me she wants to be a doctor and a teacher, so perhaps she'll be the best dressed member of the Harvard medical school faculty some day.

From what I've heard, Converse All Stars are the rage among young people in Europe right now (in basic black, if you please). There are a variety of fun colors and styles available these days, so stop by Converse to see the latest twist on a classic shoe.

Just found your blog through Bevy's It's A Golden Day, and I love it! My daughter, who's 10, just picked out a pair of purple "Chuck's" for her newest school shoes. She told me they were very "style-y."

J, she is a living doll. You are very blessed in the child department. That pose brings back so many memories to a father of three daughters. Thank you.

Rebecca has a couple of "Chucks" -- we got them at the Gap. They look like the traditional but they slide on! Available in a multitude of colors! Your daughter is adorable!

Aww, she is such a cutie!
Love the chucks. And indeed, they came back to Europe about three years ago. I love mine in Navy Blue, a sunny yellow or in grey. No black here, I am afraid :)

Those are adorable! My little one loves anything pink and sparkly. They would be a big hit.

By the way, I left something for you over at my blog today!
