Shoe Staples: the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star

No shoe is more easy to wear, or stylish, than Converse's classic Chuck Taylor All-Star. Sure, these started out as a shoe for athletes (the high-tops had good ankle support or something), but they've become a staple for pretty much anyone now. There are very few people that I know who don't own a pair of Chucks, and I always feel bad for them because they're missing out on a great pair of shoes.

One of the capsule collections that Converse came out with this year was inspired by the animated rock band the Gorillaz, which I thought was pretty awesome. They're not quite as amazing as last year's Doctor Seuss collection, but the grunge style seems to be making a come back, which makes the Gorillaz a great style inspiration.

Chucks in classic black never go out of style. I've worn mine with everything from jeans to party dresses, and they always look fabulous!

How could I not include the Batman Chucks, from the DC Comics collection? They came out with a new set this year, but I still like these dual Batman & Joker ones the best!
Why So Serious?

Just a little shopping hint for those of you looking for Converse in Canada: the Converse website doesn't ship to Canada or have a Canadian equivalent (wtf, I know), but Baggins Shoes in Victoria has free shipping on orders over $49, and their selection is amazing. They seriously have everything. All the capsule collections, all the range of colours, and they also ship internationally. YAY SHOPPING WIN!
