Speaking Of Classics…
Chuck Taylor shoes (also known as ‘Chucks’) are named after an American basketball player in the 1920s. He became a promoter for the footwear which were originally designed as basketball shoes. These sneakers became the canvas cult classic – having appeared in several movies and TV shoes – including Back To The Future, Waynes World, M*A*S*H and Happy Days.
After undergoing innovation over the years, the modern Chucks have evolved and are recognised by their cushioned ortholite sole, rubber toe cap and the brands star logo.
Pat was the first Kiwi to import Converse direct into NZ under his canvas import license from the factory back in the 1970’s. This was the start of our long standing relationship with the brand which continues to this day.
