Too bad they are no longer made in the US, just like everything used to be, Schwinn bikes used to be made in the USA for a long time, we have an old green Phantom reproduction from 1996 I think before they went Asian and the quality is so much better than any Asian Schwinn, it is actually made out of steel and weighs about 65LBS. My dad says the Chucks he had growing up were a lot better than the ones now.
had them when i was 13, wore them for a week, never wore them again. Not a comfortable shoe. I'm loyal to skate shoes now...etnies ftw.
x2 chuck taylors blow it's like no padding at all when you have flat footed Fred Flintstones feet they suck.
i now only buy redwing boots a pair last about 18months to 2years so $200 for a pair of boots that is electrical hazard water proof/ gore tex
theres a piece of metal between the sole and bottom of the boot keeps nails and other junk going through your feet.
Insulated just awesome boots.
I always get the tie up style where it's almost combat boot style. supports your ankles!
I might be dating myself but, when I was playing ball, you either wore Chucks or Pro-Keds. Then Adidas came along, Puma, and finally Nike.
The Chucks and Keds didn't have decent padding or arch support; when Nike came out, I found I could dunk much easier and made the switch.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller
I am 53 and still wearing them.A few years ago ,the day I heard they would no longer be made in U.S.A.,I went to every store I could and bought every pair in black and white that fit,I now have nine unopened American made pairs left.
