#2020 New acquisitions of the Chuck Taylor variety


So Katherine arrived yesterday with a suitcase full of my stuff from back home, which is awesome because a) I can try wearing something different than this for a change; and b) free blog topics. First up, and possibly the thing I'm most excited about, new navy Chuck Taylors. They're the perfect pair of shoes – they work with almost everything, they look great brand new and they look great battered to death (check the fade on the old pair below). This is a good day.


Time to put these guys out to pasture. They've served me well.

I LIKE YOU!

Call me old-fashioned but I favour the worn pair - and they'll fit like a dream.

Heard this the other day :

Nothing like brand new Chucks! awww, so so good. Makes my heart sing! worn in ones have their own appeal to- Grungy good meets Preppy good. How many shoes can claim to attract so many different people! My all time favourite shoe is the navy Chuck- no doubt baby

I don´t think you should give them away yet. They still look really well and can be good to wear them in certain occasions. I mean I have some pairs like this and I like to have them on now and then.
