#129 GUCCI'S VERSION OF CHUCK TAYLOR ALL-STARS

TOM FORD ERA FROM THE EARLY 2000S. OKAY I LOVE THESE. WHEN I WAS A KID I OWNED SEVERAL PAIRS OF THE CHUCK TAYLOR ALL-STARS. SO NATURALLY, WHEN I SAW THESE I HAD TO GET THEM. UNLIKE TODAY, WHERE SO MANY SHOE BRANDS HAVE THEIR OWN VERSION OF THE ALL-STARS, THAT WASN'T THE CASE ALMOST A DECADE AGO. GUCCI IS NOT MY FAVORITE LABEL, BUT JUST THE THOUGHT OF A HIGH FASHION HOUSE DOING AN INTERPRETATION OF A POPULAR SHOE THAT'S BEEN SELLING FOR SEVERAL DECADES WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO CATCH MY ATTENTION.

RELEASED DURING THE SEASON (DON'T REMEMBER THE EXACT YEAR) THAT SAW ROCK N ROLL & ASIAN INSPIRATIONS FOR THE MENS LINE, THESE SHOES WERE PAIRED WITH BAGGY SILK CREPE PANTS WITH MATCHING DRAGON EMBROIDERY & SILK MANDARIN COLLAR BUTTON SHIRTS. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SIMPLE RUBBER SOLES, THESE SHOES ARE ALL LEATHER (INCLUDING THE LACES) FEATURING A DRAGON EMBROIDERY THROUGHOUT.
