When I was a young teen, I though Chucks were really cool. Like almost all of my friends and class mates. But I didn’t get any because they were to expensive, and my mom thought that rubber stuff can’t be good for my feet.

A couple of years later I got fake white Chucks, that I also used on the tennis ground. Which turned them into that funky reddish color of tennis grounds.

My first real Chucks I got about three or four years back. Almost into my thirties… And that pair died today. Orange. So I’d like to honor them with a minute of silence…

<a minute later>

But I got myself a new pair already. I thought – at my age – I’d probably go a bit more sophisticated. White leather. With orange laces.
