taylor. chuck taylor.
"The core kid we are looking for is the 'optimistic rebel' who wants to be different, irreverent, and creative. ... In general, Converse is the everyman shoe; it inspires originality, and that's why it's popular among kids who play in garage bands. It is massively simple and has unbelievable attitude. They are like a canvas for self-expression."
i love me some chuck taylor. but optimistic rebel? ninja, please. how about something with a little more sole! i propose this as a new slogan: "they were good enough for dr. j, you bet your ass they're good enough for you. sucka!"
i wrote a little poem for my beloved shoe. feel free to take it and use it, mr converse bossman.
"Neither slip nor slide
Nor break in your stride
When you've got Chuck T. on your side."
we can split the profits you reap from my advertising genius. say, 76-24 ...
