Default Chuck Taylors

You can't beat a cheap pair of Chuck T's. Classic look for a cheap price. They never go out of style imo.

Got some red low tops, great for casual wearing, but i would guarantee myself a sprained ankle if i played in any type of chucks.

i have like 5 different pairs of high and low top chucks, best casual shoes, comfy as while not being bulky. Used to play ball in a pair of high tops, got sick of rolling my ankle every 2 games though.

I just got a new pair of low cut black Chucks. Nothing beats them. Chucks with a pair of jeans or khakis always looks good.

I love Chucks. I've got 3 pairs (high tops only, I think low top Chucks are pointless). I've got black, off-white, and red paisley.

Off-White is my favorite pair. I had wanted them since I was really young but never found them until like 4 years ago. (Got them at an army surplus store for 10 bucks!!!!)

I played bball in my black ones for about 6 months straight... Never rolled an ankle, and I have the worst ankles and knees in the history of mankind.

They look nice, but I can never bring myself to wear a pair. Don't know why. Can't believe old school guys used to wear this though. How did they not get injured?

I hate those shoes with a passion. They are so ugly and part of a retarded trend.
