As has been the case for decades now, anyone who wears a Chuck Taylor does so in order to make a statement. Whether that’s about themselves, their generation, or – as in the case of this “Stripes” model – their admiration for a little group of colonies back in 1776 that have risen to be one of the most influential in world history. The http://converse.com/” target=”_blank”>Converse brand has never been at a loss for adding stylish colors to their Hi-top Chucks, but a subtle blue striped canvas with a star print on the tongue speaks loudly. Underneath, the kicks are fitted with a leather wrapped midsole and are finished with a tan leather badge at the ankle and a matching inner lining. You can get your Uncle Sam on at select Converse dealers, including NY’s http://shop.kithnyc.com/products/converse-chuck-taylor-premium-stripes-black-1″ target=”_blank”>Kith, for $125 US Presidents.
