All you need is a good pair of Chucks

I know that I have not posted on this blog as consistently as I would have liked to these past three weeks but I can assure you all that I have no forgotten about you! I always find around this time of year that college becomes a little hectic and with early mornings and late evenings I found I just wasn’t managing my time right. I of course wanted to be posting consistently and frequently and as equally as the former I wanted to enjoy sitting down and composing these blog posts which Is ultimately why I decided to take a little bit of a break. I never want to feel stressed or under pressure while doing something I love, I want these posts to flow as organically as possible like fleeting thoughts in my wandering mind, so with this said I am now back on track. I wanted to meet my return with a post about an item that is very near and dear to my wardrobe, All Star Chuck Taylor Converse.

Chucks are such a quintessential part in my everyday look that looking back I am appalled that I have never written about them before. Living a busy life where you are always on the go basically requires a good pair of comfy shoes, and I can’t think of another shoe fitting for this title as much as Chucks are. I slide my feet in and out of them day in and day out without a second thought and honestly don’t know if there is any shoe that could replace Chucks in my wardrobe. They have become a such iconic look and really made a big return with Dr Martens last year when the 90’s grunge was back in full force. Converse became a go to piece in so many different wardrobes and it was definitely one of my favourite trends of last year.

 I discovered converse about 7 years ago and have become a staple ever since. I can still remember ordering my first pair which was in a sea foam green colour and I am not kidding when I say that I wore them to death. I finally had to retire them 2 years ago when I realised that I have worn the sole of them down to basically non existence. Ever since this first pair my love for them has only grown, they are a purchase that is so worth the price of them, there is not many pairs of shoes that I have owned that have lasted the Irish weather for 5 years! It’s a feat in itself, never mind the fact that these are a pair of shoes that almost utter the words versatility. Whether you are going to college, to lunch, on a date or even a music festival, these shoes will be firmly on your feet where they belong. 

A great thing that Converse have been able to master is that they appeal to all unique sense of style, the athleisure aesthetic, the professional aesthetic and everything in between. It’s a shoe that ties all our individual styles together with two white shoe laces! There is so much that I could talk and frankly rave about with Chucks but I thought why not just shoe you all some of my favourite styles that Converse have to offer all our wardrobes.

A life without Chucks would be a very uncomfortable walk so why not pamper the feet that are bringing you to wonderful and exciting new adventures!
