You have to admire how Converse Chuck Taylors managed to stay cool over time. Chuck Taylors, those old, basic looking Converse shoes that stopped being functional for sports about 40 years ago–managed to retain their attitude throughout several decades as “anti-heroes” like Kurt Cobain and Joey Ramone adopted the brand…In 2008 (finally I am writing about it) Converse turned 100 years old and as part of their anniversary program they brought together 100 graphic artists from around the world to design cool Converse kicks for (Product) RED. This is a great program…you can support (Product) RED by purchasing one of the excellent designs, or by customizing you own pair in the Converse customizing area through a link called “make it red”.
