the study of mustard yellow converse chuck taylors

5 Nov

Mustard yellow, shoelace-less Converse All-Star Chuck Taylor’s, perfectly distressed and exactly what I needed to combat Friday.  A few years ago I was dating a guy who loved Chuck’s and I purchased several pairs while we were together.  These slightly scuffed absolutely loved ones were actually from the men’s department–in the U.S. that means you order 2 sizes smaller than you are in women’s (I’m a size 10 and these are size 8 in men’s).  I should point out, they came without shoelaces, there is a bit of elastic behind the tongue to help them stay on; I love that they are slip-ons and I love the yellow color. If I’m going to wear flats (which, if you’ve been here for any time at all you realize I don’t do often) I want them to make me smile.

Happy Friday!

    What a coincidence! I’m wearing my blue lace-free Chuck’s today!

    I’m pretty sure we were separated at birth! LOL … love the shoes. Great color and perfect for a Friday. I feel the same way about flats :)

    I am in love!! I have had many pairs of converse over my lifetime. I remember when I got my first pair in 4th grade. They were black hi-tops and Russ, Jen and I all had the same style that year. Everyone teased me that I had boy shoes, but I wore them proudly and I still own a pair today. These yellow beauties are the exact style my AJ wanted for school this year, but we couldn’t find them in her size. She opted for deep purple high-tops instead. My dream shoes are black leather converse. Someday I will own them when I can bring myself to fork out 75.00 for a pair :)

    I like them. I was just thinking (really this crossed my mind) how you didn’t have m/any flats on the site. Go team.
