Default Chuck Taylor All Stars

If there are any out there old enough to remember thier playing days in the 60's , there was only Chuck Taylor All Stars. In my day in junior college ball we were given one free pair each year . Side bar - remember painting your feet with tough skin)

I thought some might find this history of the greatest basketball shoe ever ( still around) interesting:

I still have a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor all star tennis shoes. They are still popular and the Converse brand has come back. You can still see some of the tough skin in them. They are made of pure rubber and are still in good shape.
