Taco Shoesday Converse Chuck Taylor All Star!

tacoshoesday_slide1

If you could build your own custom taco for Taco Tuesday what would it have? how big would it be? and how many would you have?!  Well I’m pretty sure you’ll need some shoes to stroll down in so why not the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shoe?!  Born Charles Hollis Taylor in rural Brown County in 1901, worked as a salesman and was soon hired by Converse.  He had design inputs on a new shoe, which included an All-Star patch.  Later on in 1923 Chuck Taylor’s name was added to the patch and became the Chuck Taylor All-Stars.

It’s a classic that’s worn by musicians, artists, celebrities, film makers and more, making it one of the most recognizable shoes in the world.   The shoe features a canvas upper with a heavy-duty rubber outsole, a rubber toe cap for some added durability and protection, metal eyelets for quick and easy lacing, plus it’s canvas-lined with a lightly padded footbed for some added comfort.  An old school pair of shoes, worn by many should remain a classic forever.
