I was never a very good basketball player growing up, but I never really cared much, the most importing thing was my parents always bought me a new pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars every season.
I never knew who Chuck Taylor was and only new his name was on the coolest pair of shoes around. I just recently learned that Chuck Taylor was a former high school basketball player who sold and grew Converse’s All-Star shoe brand around the country.
Besides the shoes, the striped socks in the 1970’s were always fun. While most folks liked to wear the same color, a lot of kids like myself liked to mix and match them.
