First pair of chucks

(viewed 1852 times)
Bookmark and Share
So the girl came home from school last week going on about these cool shoes
all her friends wear. She proceeds to explain to me what they look like and
I respond with "Chucks"? You want chucks? "Yes, that is what they are
called", she replies. So this morning my girl got her first pair of chucks.
She wanted black and white but the only ones we found had some pink in them
but they were better then the pink plaid ones and purple floral. Those
according to the independent 6th grader are not cool.

I was pretty impressed by her choice as well.

I thought you might be the first to respond Bronxelf. Converse must love you!

They well should love me. I'm like a walking advertisement.

Then again, theyre not yet giving me free Chucks. Hm.

However, I promised myself a new pair in October. I'm going for the black/white wool houndstooth ones. They match one of my winter coats. That will make pair #6.

Chucks? I've never heard them called that. Good choice either way.

That is what I grew up calling them, Chuck Taylors or chucks. I tried to get her to buy a pair of Jack Purcells too but she did not like the way the looked. She looks very cute in her chucks though, especially with her skinny little legs.

always wear them when skateboarding, but always called them cons. Agree that black is the best choice! although I'd be swayed by a cadburys purple if I could find some.

She has not tried to skateboard yet. She is very excited that they are starting to get dirty and a little beat up.

Yes, I've never owned a pair before. They're kind of expensive here... (starting from 50 Euros for the really really basic ones)

Crimey! I remember buying them to skate in nearly 16 years ago and thinking they were really cheap - around the £20 mark? 50 Euros is daylight wobbewy!!!

Hmmm, we paid 19.99 for the beans. They were 25.00 on the converse website. She loves them, I am lucky if she takes them off to go to bed.

Bmal- that is her first iBook that has been altered slightly to move a litle faster.
