Converse were my first pair of shoes that I thought made me cool. I was fifteen and ready to be different from everyone else, sadly that dream didn’t last. The popularity of the Chuck Taylor’s grew and soon even ‘the cool kids’ at school wore them. ( I was never one of them). I’m a bit older now and still have a pair of Chucks, a shoe that is reliable and goes from casual to dressy in any instant. Summer is here and the festivals are lining up. Word is that Converse is the major sponsor of Australia’s biggest music festivals – Big Day Out and they have this amazing offer exclusive to those who love their Chucks.
