While in Charleston, I wore my chucks one morning to grab coffee and walk around the Battery. I wasn’t really planning on walking around the Battery, but instead just sit at a coffee shop, eat some food and then hop back on my bike. If you don’t remember, my bike was my BEST FRIEND this last trip.

I rarely ever wear my chucks in real life to be honest. They run a tad too narrow for me, and I just don’t get the obsession with comfort over them. To me, they’re miserable. I love instead, my Vans or Adidas. I can walk miles in them without a single complaint. But this trip I finally decided to do two things. Loosen the damn laces a bit all the way down, and wear my little mini socks with them (sadly I had black ones on this day and you can see them a bit here). Now the shoes aren’t amazingly comfortable still, but they survived my long walk which was a first. So you may now see me wearing these a lot more outside of just sitting or standing for a photo opp.

    Can’t believe it took you so long to realize that you needed to loosen the laces, ha!

    So glad you’ve seen the light! You can never go wrong with a classic pair of white Chucks.


    Totally loosening the laces on mine when I get home tonight! ha. Your dress is adorable!


    I love my chucks but I agree, the narrowness of them isn’t ideal for walking long distances! Love your dress.

    You used to wear them without socks?


      I know I’m crazy!


        How many pairs of Converse sneakers do you own?


        I wear my converse without socks too. What made them uncomfortable for you when you wore sockless?
