I thought converse and chucks are the same, are they not?
Converse/chucks for me, low top because I'm too lazy to do and undo the laces everytime (ain't nobody got time fo dat shit). The lows are easy to take off and pull on without having to fumble with the laces.
Hi-top chucks all-day. Work with shorts, work with jeans, even work with khakis, if you're a mid-90s L.A. gangster, haha. I have to replace some old pairs, but I try to have all the major flavors: black, navy blue, the whites with the red and navy trim, and red and royal blue to match a few shirts. I like them best with shorts and with the laces left loose. I can wear them with jeans too, but I kind of prefer suede Pumas when its not raining. The canvas of the chucks win out when it comes to weather.
