Walk the Walk- Chucks Forever by TeaPhotography Walk the Walk- Chucks Forever by TeaPhotography
I could not help but photograph these Chucks all lined up in a row in a shoe store we often browse through, when we visit Santa Cruz, CA, being that they'd set up their traditional styles of regular and high-tops in rainbow order! :giggle:
:heart:

Thing is, it was very crowded in there, and really I just took the ONE shot, and NO more! So that's it, only one to work with. :)

I love Chucks, and I've been wearing them for a very long time- since early in my high school years- and I won't say exactly how long ago THAT'S been! :lol:

However, I STILL have AND wear my very first pair of chucks! They are green canvas, and I LOVE them intensely, and wear them often- though there was a period of some years in between when I was kind of more "goth" style in attire, and they weren't worn as much, but I am so happy I saved them, and they are holding up quite well:

- One of my own FAVE image's I've uploaded on dA, of my first cat Jikan, sitting on my green canvas chucks, which I've had since high school. He periodically does this, when he knows I'm leaving and doesn't want me to go! :aww::heart:

- One of my first images, from my sub-gallery of shoes, etc., depicting the same green canvas chucks since high school. :nod:

- One of my earliest images, ever actually, also in the sub-gallery of shoes, depicting a newer pair of chucks, a silky black material with pink blossoms. :D I love these. They are about 7 years old, and between these and my original greens, I wear these two pair the most, though I have two other pair of chucks, and that's it. :)


I think Chucks are a simple but well put together shoe. They last, and last, though they're nothing fancy, and yet, you can have fun with colour choices and designs.

They are usually extremely flat though, but I have to wear my custom-made arch inserts in all shoes anyway. :lol:

[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]

Cool shot! I love these kind of shoes, though I've never had the "Chucks" brand (I've actually never even heard of them around here). But I love these sneakers with the white toes. I had this one black pair, with pink & white stripes inside; loved them, but they got too old and uncomfortable. Now I have a black pair that has flowers embroidered on the sides. I really don't wear shoes much anymore, even in the winter, other than my Crocs. :lol:

Yes, yellow! I think the yellow would be pretty neat, too. It's a unique colour, one that not too many people have, and therefore definitely a nice choice. Plus they are cheery, creative, and Summer-y!
