You see it in everything from automobiles to the shirts hanging in your closet. In the last decade or so, vintage is where it’s at. I’m not really sure who started the vintage trend. I’m sure it was someone famous such as a singer or some other type of performer. Either way, vintage is back and I believe here to stay. I will admit, I love a lot of different vintage looks. The retro t-shirt, some retro jeans, some new cars these days are going with the classic muscle car look from the 60s and 70s. I think everyone relates to the vintage look because it takes them back to a place and time that reminds them of their youth or maybe time spent with their mom or dad. Something they wish they could re-live again.
Vintage Footwear – Chuck Is His Name And Shoes Are His Game
When I think of vintage footwear, Chuck Taylors immediately come to mind. A shoe that was made by Converse in the 1920s and was sold and marketed by a guy named Charles “Chuck” Taylor as he taught basketball camps around the country to highschoolers. Soon after, 90 percent of college and pro basketball players were wearing Chuck Taylors. Even military personnel were wearing Chuck Taylors during training. That is something I never knew. I can just imagine seeing a soldier wearing his fatigues, helmet, rifle, and sporting a pair of Chucks. I love that mental image. It’s now 2018 and I challenge you to go out in public and look around. I bet you will see someone sporting a pair of Chucks. Be it a musician, highschooler, or a yuppie drinking their coffee at Starbucks, Chuck Taylors are everywhere and I don’t see them disappearing anytime soon.
