what do your Converse Chuck Taylor's say about you????
I put on my black Chuck Taylor low tops yesterday, but my mother-in-law had given them to me a couple of years ago, so I am not neccessarily a black low top guy. You see, I think that having Chucks tells one thing about you, but the color and high vs. low tells you the most about a person. I found these black hightops along the highway, believe it not, we stopped the car by the airport and got one, then a mile further, got the other. They were clean and never worn, and my size, but I am not a Chuck black high top. That suggests, I think, more of a type A personality.
I am, by choice and temperment, Converse Chuck Taylor white low tops. I have two pairs at least 16 years old. They are SO OLD THEY SAY MADE IN USA. My grandfather had worked in the Converse factory until he was in his 70s. He was a tiny little Welshman who hadn't been to school, but he spent his whole life reading books, and making Chuck Taylors in Massachusetts. He taught my mom to love books, and through her, I love books too.
Anyway, white low tops, in my mind, suggest a laid back, creative type of guy.
Mellow and friendly in a quiet way.
My friend Aara was over yesterday, and she has purple low tops, and she is a VERY purple low top person.
Any opinons on all this?
