Waterproof Chucks?

I am a Chuck Taylor fan for life! Although I don’t wear them nearly as much as I use to, but just know that I will always have one in my possession. The current one I own I have had for a little over six years. It looks just like you imagine a 6-year-old Chuck Taylor would look.

For whatever reason someone decided that we needed waterproof Chucks. Why? Was there an overwhelming number of complaints from consumers about the non-waterproof quality of Chucks?

As you can tell I am not a fan of the idea to make Chucks waterproof. Too late, they are already out there! Whenever I think of waterproof converse I think— clogs in the shape of Chuck Taylors. 

This completely changes the charm and the very reason people fall in love with Chucks in my opinion. Brand new chucks are great, weathered Chucks look even better.

To make Chucks waterproof, you have to change the material, you change the material, you change the brand.

    Finally a person just like me, I will always have at least one pair in my closet, they are just too classic to ever go out of style, to be honest, I have never own a single pairs of chucks that is not white, I love them so much, I even wear them in the rain, snow, as a result, they get dirty super fast, then I en-up have to buy another pair, I personally think buy making them waterproof is an great idea, now I can wear them even in the rain. I would not worry too much, waterproof chunks are just part of the collection, the company will never get rid of the classic ones.

    I love wearing Chuck Taylors as well, but I can also be a clean freak when it comes to clothes. It bothers me so much when the sole of a white shoe gets dirty, and it is so hard to clean. I actually like the waterproof Chuck Taylor because it is easier to maintain, and I don’t have to worry about it when the weather is bad.

    Omg waterproof chucks? Ew, I never knew that even existed. anyways, I prefer the classic Chuck Taylors. If you didn’t want to get your shoes wet or dirty you can always wear regular boots.
