Chocolate Chuck Taylor® shoes – yum.
For (us) folks who are “Chucks” lovers, this is a basic staple in a casual wardrobe, and like other colors in the Chuck Taylor® collection are very versatile and will go with almost anything.
Maybe it seems silly to get so excited about such a simple thing – but not for us “Chucks” fans! Chuck Taylor® shoes have been around since the earlier part of the 1900’s and have done nothing but get more and more popular until today they’re at an all-time high in terms of their demand.
But – back to the subject at hand – Chocolate Chuck Taylor® shoes. Here are some facts about these fun classics:
Anyone can wear them. That’s right. They’re available in sizes that range from the largest men’s size to the smallest of tiny infant feet.
There are some great styles available. The styles available for Chocolate Chuck Taylor® shoes today include not only Hi Tops and Lo Tops (“Ox”) but also come in a Slip-On (“Slips”) style that have a special support built in so that they don’t require lacing to stay snug on the feet. Occasionally I have seen styles such as the Double Upper and Double Tongue also available in Chocolate brown, at least as a contrasting color.
Most popular new style – The most called-for new style in the Chocolate Chuck Taylor® collection is the All Star® “Slip” as described above. The popularity likely stems from a recent trend in a “laceless” look as well as their easy-on, easy-off feature. This is one of the hottest-selling shoes for children these days – probably due to the simplicity of their staying on the feet without laces as well as how easy it is to put them on little feet.
Pricing and Shopping Information – If you prefer to shop offline in a department store setting, you can expect to pay around $45-$50 for an adult size (varying slightly between Hi Top and Lo Top), while the price for children’s shoes run around $30-$35 retail. The cost for a Slip-On style is about $5.00 more, no matter which size purchased. Online shopping provides more opportunity for discount prices – and there is plenty of help finding the right size withhout much risk of having to return them.
Online Shopping Options – There are a few ways to purchase Chocolate Chuck Taylor® shoes online, including merchants such as Zappos.com that provide competetive prices as well as free shipping and free returns in case the shoes don’t fit correctly. There is also a great resource that one can tap into – the Chocolate Chuck Taylor® page that gives updated information on all shopping resources and very likely offers the best deals available online.
