I was having a good time with my Nike Pegasus (check the post here), until one of my office colleague spoilt my joy with the Nike Pegasus, saying that thou shalt not wear jeans with running shoes and hammering me with some links to prove that (like here, and here). Seriously, I was having a good time with my Peggy and jeans, but maybe it’s a good idea to find another shoes..
So I was walking around on the Valentine’s day yesterday when, guess what, I came across some shops at Grand Indonesia that offers a buy 1 get 1 fot v-day promo! That’s right, maybe retailers currently have inventories with level up to their necks that they have to utilize any possible events to justify cutting prices.. Sounds good for consumer these days, huh. I came across the Converse store. They are famous for selling the Chuck Taylor All-Stars shoes, which basically is a canvas shoes with rubber toe cap and sole. The shoes gained popularity when a basketball player and Converse shoe salesman Chuck Taylor began endorsing the shoes. He also improved the shoes design and later become the product spokesperson. It became popular with basketball players at that time, and the popularity spreads into various subculture.. Nowadays, baketball players don’t wear Chucks anymore, however its popularity lives on.
I then bought a pair of Chucks, as you may have guessed. The black one are classic, but I need to distinguish myself with others so I pick the grey one. It also has red stripes on the toe cap, making it looks cool. There are mid and low top sneakers, however I picked the low one as the retailer had more color options for the low top one.
The soles, at first, felt stiff. So stiff that I wonder if basketball players actually played on these shoes. But after some walking around the mall, the soles began to soften and became more flexible. Nice.
I guess I gonna walk around these for a while now. This is technically a basketball shoes, so yes you can wear these with jeans. Haleluyah, man. Anyway, you may have wondered what happens to the free pairs of Chucks, but I elaborately omit that story. Haha.
