And the above is truth.
[Get thee to a NY festival and go nuts. Take these, a tee, undies and shorts. Flirt your way to borrowing the rest. Done.]
But what I've happily discovered is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber can easily be an everyday, rain or shine, urban jungle grime repelling footwear option that inserts itself rather nicely into the footwear rota.
Slick in looks and as comfortable as the canvas option, the terry lining actually makes these feel more smooth on my foot when short or sans socking it and even though they are structured - hey, it is moulded rubber people - I don't feel clumpy. I'm awkward enough, I don't need another hindrance.
Although I received* these some time ago, I wanted to make sure they were actually put through their paces. What could I say about a shoe in a box? Not bloody much. But after wearing them for some time doing parental, mundane, weird, visit-y and shopping-y type stuff, I'm stoked mostly by how fucking clean they still look followed super closely by how comfy they are. I can also vouch that yes, you're feet do stay dry after jumping in puddles but your clothes will be fucked. Jumping activities should be engaged in after all errands are concluded.
Excitedly for me [and possibly those with cool kid nieces and nephews] they come in kid options of red, pink and black [why no white tho...dang?] - so the issue of trying to merge function and style is now solved because FACT: Traditional gumboots for kids are lame and these rubber chucks are not.
Another FACT: You'd be more likely to pass dress code at da club in these than the original version.
