Converse Boosts the Saturation on Their Chuck Taylor II Neons

My wife and I recently argued about Chuck Taylor All Stars. She’s of the school of thought that Chucks only look good when they’re in their basic black, white, or red, with burgundy just making her grade.

Socks That Rock Manila Streets

RRJ Goes Health Goth with Strike Series

There’s a bit of Health Goth action in the second installment to RRJ’s Strike Series collection, which is something we appreciate.
