WishFlix is a new weekly series dedicated to film and highlighting different trends in movies.
For this first installment we’ll cover the timeless classic and ever ubiquitous Chuck Taylor All-Star by Converse. Initially produced as a basketball sneaker in 1917, Chuck requested that they redesign the sneaker with more support and flexibility for players. He at the time was a player-manager for Chicago based Converse All-Star Basketball team. Converse re-released the sneaker in 1922 and added Taylors signature to the ankle patch and birthed one of the most iconic pieces of footwear of all-time.

The Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber low tops are built for water repellence. The canvas-backed rubber upper construction is all about keeping those droplets at bay. Then they’ve added a gusseted tongue and no medial eyelets, too. Keep your feet warm and dry, but still in Chucks. Both the “Red” & “Black” low top rubber Chuck Taylor’s can now be picked up online and in-store at our Moreland Ave. location.
Undefeated links up with Converse once again for a new collection of everyday sneakers for your wardrobe. One of the first things that is apparent with this collection is the clean aesthetic the duo has crafted with this set of sneakers. For the first of the two, the sneaker comes wrapped in leather, with a mix of white and red leather, splitting the sneaker, with the red leather taking the heel. For the latter sneaker, it comes all black, and both are finished with a white sole. For some extra detailing, both sneakers are lined with cheetah print, say “Play Dirty” on the insole, and receive Undefeated branding on the lace tips.

Just in time for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, Converse presents a patriotic “Vintage Flag” edition of its premium Chuck Taylor All Star 70s. Pairing an all-over stars pattern on the left shoe with a red and white bars pattern on the right, the mismatched kicks are a nice alternative to the usual high-top Chucks.
