Wanna hear something cool? Well we’ve got you covered. Recently, we managed to steal 5 minutes of Jack Thake’s time at our Chuck Taylor shoot, getting the DL on all things Converse…
My earliest memory of converse would be back when I was younger and I went to NYC to visit my family. I got a great photo sitting on a giant baseball glove in the centre of Times Square, wearing a pair of Converse! It was amazing!
My memories of Chucks began when I was back in school on the summer breaks, spending 6 weeks of holiday out and about with my mates and always wearing my Converse. They were my go-to shoe for riding around on my BMX.
Converse means a lot to me as it reminds me of the times where I used to travel to meet my family in the states. That’s where my first pair of Converse were bought and I still have them now! They are truly timeless, it’s mad that I wore them growing up and still do now.
My favourite pair would be my Chuck Taylor 70’s in black and white because they go with everything! I love the old school look of the ’70s and I think it complements my style.
My style is always adapting and changing but Converse stays part of it. Currently my style changes day to day, some days I could be wearing a tucked in tee with slim trousers, the next some wide jeans a hoodie. Converse goes with all styles and I think that’s why they’re an amazing shoe to experiment with.
We hear ya Jack. Shop your pair here.
