    I never had that problem with them, and my feet are a mess - I crushed the bone ends in my heels as a kid, jumping out of swings (don't ask). I had to wear arch supports for years. Chucks have always...

    Personally, I started wearing Chuck Taylors in my New Wave days. Think 1982 - Levi's, white dress shirt, suit jacket from Goodwill with Clash, Jam, Talking Heads and Patti Smith buttons on the...

    First of all, some of the posters here seem to have missed the part where you said that you paid the rent for the full lease term up front. If the facts are as you state, and you've paid all rent due...

    I got married in a black Yves Saint Laurent tux and matching black Chuck Taylor high-tops. My best man and groomsmen were similarly attired.

    Has anyone here seen John Hughes' 1988 flick, "She's Having a Baby?" All this talk about lawnmowers makes me want to warn people away from plastic flywheels.

    I gave serious thought to leaving the kickstand off of my Sports when I rehabilitated it, mostly because I was a little appalled by the damaged chainstays I found when I removed it. I thought on it...

    For the record, I was wrong about this. After posting this response I still had the same problem, so I did a bit more research and it turns out that the shallower angled face is oriented inward, and...

    I used crumpled foil with some light machine oil for lubrication on all the chrome parts on my Raleigh Sports, and it worked like a charm. Rust came off easily, and not a scratch in sight. I...

    By the way, I mean "off-the-beaten-path" quite literally - the shop...
