Remember Chuck Taylors?

Jeramy ordered a new pair of Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars last night. Does anybody out there remember those? I never had a pair, because I felt like I had clown feet when wearing them. But they were quite the fad with the rocker and skater crowds when I was in middle school and high school. Jeramy, who unlike myself fell into to the aforementioned social categories as a teenager, most certainly owned a pair or two back in the day. They complimented his leather jacket and dyed black or green hair well.

Anyhow, the new ones have skulls on them. They're pretty cool looking if you ask me. Check the pattern out here: http://www.converse.com/LiveFiles/1/2245/1W630_220.jpg. Jeramy is getting the high-top version though.

LOL, I remember Converse when I was in Jr. High, My brother was a Rocker with the Coverse High Tops, Bandanas tied down his leggs and one on his head, I had the Pat Bennitar look going on (trying anyway) and break dancing to Mr. Roboto. I cant believe there back.

OMG!!! LOVED my chuck's!!! I was defintely in the skater category- if you have to label, lol!
My best friend from high school just had her wedding last weekend- got married in custom "Mr. & Mrs." Chuck's. Such good memories. Except for that very special Chuck Taylor smell... you'll know what I mean...

I still have my Converse from 7th grade! And yes, they did make me look like I had clown feet, but I wore them anyway.

I'm digging the skull pattern. I wonder if they have those in children's sizes for my son?
